On Monday, Jan. 25, 2010, The Times launched a new version of the Homicide Report. You have arrived at the old blog.
Readers can no longer post new comments on this site, but we encourage you to join the conversation on our new site. The updated Homicide Report features an interactive map and searchable database of the more than 2,600 homicides in L.A. County since January 2007, when Times' reporter Jill Leovy first started this blog with the goal of covering each one.
Comments prior to Jan. 26 will, at least for now, remain archived here, with links provided in the new database.
If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will do our best to respond.

Betsy Ross Pigg, an 81-year-old white woman, was found beaten to death Wednesday, March 14, in her home on the 13000 block of Havenwood Drive in Garden Grove.
Police have not yet found a suspect in her murder, but Thomas A. Levingston, a 25-year-old computer technician, was arrested March 14 on an outstanding warrant on a 2005 charge of stealing money from Pigg's checking account. At the time of her death, Pigg had a restraining order against Levingston, who is a person of interest in the homicide investigation but not a suspect, said Lt. Dennis Ellsworth of the Garden Grove Police Department. Levingston was being held at Theo Lacy Jail in Orange. (--Garrett Therolf/LAT)
