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.

Los Angeles: A 2-month-old baby boy, Latino, was discovered dead at about 10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 18 at 8012 S. Figueroa Ave. in Los Angeles, in LAPD's 77th Street Division. Patrol officers were summoned in response to a call of a possible SIDS death; investigators later determined that the baby had suffered some blunt force trauma. LAPD child-abuse detectives later named her 20-year-old father the suspect, and he was arrested.
