    If they want to do the traditional thing by wearing a number, they really have no choice but to use his. If she had a special number maybe they could use that.

      I've seen sports teams do that when someone close to the team who doesn't have a number (coach, broadcaster, etc) passes. No reason they couldn't put KP on there.

        for victims of domestic abuse (in general).

        They didn't mention the victim here, but I think that's because they didn't want to call attention to the fact that Belcher killed her.
