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, and we will do our best to respond.

The following series of posts comprises the weekly list of homicide victims in Los Angeles County for this period. A slow week--until Sunday, that is, when at least seven people were killed, including two in LAPD's Pacific Division, which covers Venice and parts of the Westside, one of the lowest homicide areas in the city. Reports from days past are updated here: The information is from law enforcement, the Los Angeles County coroner, and families. Above, the cousins of Julio Lizano, Echo Park victim from Sunday, light a candle next to the bloodstain on the sidewalk where he fell.

The murders in NYC are "off the chain" also. In poor communities around America, death, jail, failing schools, hopelessness are the norm.

American leaders (politicians, businesses, educational) need to CARE!
