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 homicidereport@latimes.com, and we will do our best to respond.

R.I.P Pete Watch over us down here............

ANOTHER BLACKMAN KILLED SENSELESSLY. MY HEART GOES OUT TO HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS. WE NEED TO GET OUR HOUSE IN ORDER. WHEN WE ALLOW OTHER TO REPORT THR GOING ONS IN OUR COMMUNITY, THIS IS THE RESULT. EVEN IF THIS ELDERLY GENTLEMAN HAD GANG TIES, I SERIOUSLY DOUBT HE WAS ACTIVE. WHAT BAFFLES ME IS HOW IS IT THAT A 63 YR OLD BLACKMAN'S DEATH IS LABELED AS GANG RELATED. I AM HARD PRESSED TO CONCEIVE A SENIOR OUT ON THE STREETS PUSHING THE LINES.
