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 location of Brandon Thompson's stabbing. Brandon Frazier Thompson, a 20-year-old black man, was stabbed several times in the 12400 block of Eucalyptus Avenue in Hawthorneand died on Friday, Aug. 21, according to Los Angeles County coroner's officials.

Thompson, of Torrance, apparently went to the home of his ex-girlfriend, where she was living with her current boyfriend, said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office.

Winter said Thompson was trying to enter their home when they decided to leave. Thompson then chased the pair down the street and struck his ex-girlfriend's boyfriend, Winter said.

After he was struck, the man pulled out a weapon and stabbed Thompton several times in the face and back, Winter said. He was pronounced dead at 4:29 p.m.
