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.

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.
