Miriam Frankl's aunt, Rebecca German, is a professor at the Hopkins School of Medicine. She shared the victim impact statement she read at Meighan's sentencing with the Baltimore Sun:
"I am Rebecca German, Miriam Frankl's aunt. I have no children of my own, and my niece and nephews mean a lot to me.
When Miriam was killed I lost two women. The first is the girl who I was at her birth, a million times in between and again on the day that she died. She was fearless and bold, and was exploring and discovering and expressing herself from an early age. I ache every time I think about her smile, her freckles and of all that beauty inside and out that is now gone.
When Miriam came to Baltimore there were three generations of women at Johns Hopkins, my mother, myself and my niece. My mother is now in the end stages of Alzheimer's disease. Miriam is gone, too. I feel that I was part of a chain that has been cut off at both ends. Strength and love and wisdom are supposed to be passed on from generation to generation. There is no one for me to pass on to.
