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.

Very sorry to hear that another human being has been killed. I want to comment briefly though on the recent change in the Homicide page format. Where is the interactive that gives a detailed total for the homicides committed in a particular area? I heard recently in the news that there is a paid service that details those crimes and other crimes. I know it isn't good when you have a good thing and then lose it. For some that information may have just been something useless or fruitless. But for those of us that have grown up in high crime areas that information only makes us more aware. Please bring back the interactive.
