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.

Rancho Dominguez: Man, 49, is found dead in trunk of burning car

September 23, 2008 |  3:40 pm

A 49-year-old black man was found dead in the trunk of his burning car in the 19200 block of Laurel Park Road on Thursday, Sept. 11.

Investigators know little about the victim, Antonio Greene, except that he was unemployed and from the Los Angeles area. His parents and siblings reported him missing on the day his body was discovered by firefighters, who were called to the car fire.

Homicide Det. Kevin Lowe of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Greene was a big man and probably didn't get into the trunk without a fight. Detectives have no suspects and no motive for the crime. Anyone with information is asked to call Lowe at (323) 890-5500.
