FAQ: A permanent home for questions and answers
Jill Leovy, who started the Homicide Report is early 2007, wrote a series of posts that year that acted as the official frequently asked questions for this blog. It has come to our attention that the new design of The Times' blogs has made it difficult to find those posts. Those explanations are now available in a new FAQ section for the Homicide Report.
We will enable comments on the FAQ page so readers will have a central place to ask general questions about this blog. The reporters and editors who are responsible for the Homicide Report will attempt to answer questions posted in a timely manner, and as the blog grows and evolves we will update the page with new information.
