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.

Glendale: Guillermo Jacobo, 41

July 17, 2009 |  3:35 pm

Guillermo Jacobo, a 41-year-old Latino, struck his head in a fight and died from a brain injury July 9. He was injured in a fight on June 29 in the 1400 block of South Brand Boulevard in Glendale, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

Jacobo was leaving a bar and there was a fight outside, said Craig Harvey, a spokesman for the coroner's office. Jacobo was caught up in the fight and sustained the head injury that led to his death, Harvey said.

Harvey said coroner's investigators were unsure of the exact cause of Jacobo's injury. Jacobo either was struck in the head during the fight or fell and struck his head on the pavement during the fight, Harvey said.

The injury occurred at 4:57 a.m. June 29, and Jacobo was pronounced dead at the hospital at 1:51 p.m. July 9.
