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.

Comments prior to Jan. 26 will, at least for now, remain archived here, with links provided in the new database.
