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.

Well its going on 2 weeks since you left us to join your mom in heaven and we are still all in disbelief. I look daily and try to find anything that would answer our questions but find nothing.
Seems that death plays a role in our lives but there in that area its a daily role in many lives. Not one of us can understand the life that you had to endure while residing in LA, Not one of us understand how a life is taken so easily and a person becomes just another "STATISTIC" or just another death in LA. And to find nothing about who or why is disturbing.
Nephew we will not let you be another number to anyone you are a person with a meaning to life and unfortunately a meaningless person/people took your life and you from us......YOUR FAMILY I wish that I could go back in time back to March 2006 and stop you and your sister from getting on that plane but time travel is not possible the reality is that someone has to pay the price for your death and I pray LA serves justice unto these empty souls
Sad time reading the LA TIMES all the loss and families left crushed with unanswered questions................. never thought we would be one them
