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 [email protected], and we will do our best to respond.

How many people were killed at these projects over the last 40 plus years?....Better many people were killed on 107th alone...from Alameda to Central in Watts over the last 40 years...some one should start a murder map and graph containing where all the murders took place in LA county history.....Im not suprised to see that the murders in LA happen in the same places year after year.
