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.

Christopher was not a gang related person, he was sweet and kind-hearted and he did nothing but uplift people. HE loved to play chess and dominoes, He liked the boondocks,south park and any other funny cartoon. He has an unborn son whom he died thinking it would be a girl named paradise.

Chris was honestly a good person,he treated everyone the way he wanted to be treated no matter how you looked or what race you were.its impossible not to like him...i wish the people who took his life would have known that before they judged him....and his neborn son was born in october just as he...and chris jr. will never get to know how awesome of a father he had...but he looks just like him2 chris will live on through him. i miss you chris...and always will!

CHRIS WAS NEVER GANG RELATED AND FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO HAPPEN TO HIM WAS VERY WRONG ... CHRIS WAS A VERY GOOD YOUNG MAN AND ALWAYS HAD SMILES ON HIS FACE EVERYDAY, WAS A REAL MAN , TAUGHT ME SO MANY THINGS IN LIFE HE WAS VERY EASY TO GET ALONG WITH ... HE WAS LIKE AND ALWAYS LIKE A BIG BROTHER I NEVER HAVE BEFORE I MISS HIM SO MUCH .... SO WHOEVER DID THIS TO MY BROTHER WAS WRONG AND DUMB ..... I MISS U MA GOON CHRIS ....
