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.

Ernesto Tovar, a 21-year-old Latino, died on Saturday, Sept. 19, after he was beaten at Long Beach Boulevard and Willow Place in South Gate, according to Los Angeles County coroner's officials.

Tovar was found lying in the street on Sept. 14 with blunt-force injuries, said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office. Tovar was taken to a hospital, where he told doctors he was beaten with a baseball bat, Winter said.

Tovar died in the hospital four days later at 6:30 p.m. No suspect information was available.
