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.

To Akitra and family, sorry to hear of the lost of your cousin. I do remember Cupcake. Take care.

I question why was she out in the streets walking at that time of the evening or morning?, that's the time of night when predators (cowards) are out to distroy and catch someone slippin, and they had a great chance to do so that night, because it was a chance no one would see them do the dirt they've did. I hope and pray that they're caught, and pay for the life they've taken.

jayteereal, maybe she was going to work.

cupcake was a cool person got a chance to know her in passing and she always spoke with a smile. May God bless you family in its time of need. She left a good impression

syscom3 going to work after 1am in the morning?, What job is that, you tell me? give me some of that you been drinkin', and smokin'..., it ain't nothing out there after 1am, and especially for a female to be out there walking by herself, I'm not saying she was wrong to be out there as a grown women, but she's a female and shouldn't be walking by herself

Alone or not she is dead and some evil coward is responsible for it. He exists only to kill again, whether the victim is male or female. Sorry bastard. I guess to snitch would ruin street cred. Senseless!

lots of jobs have you coming or going at odd hours. airport jobs, maintenance jobs, fast food jobs. drive thru do stay open 24 hours.

why question what the person was doing out?
better question the person who shot them. why did they shoot her?

dont blame the victim, thats ignorant.
but JT you sound very young, otherwise you would know that jobs come at all hours. even jobs for females.

may she rest in paradise and the killer(s) be caught

JT, on many occasions I am returning from work in the wee hours of the morning. And I am a proffesional, whos job requires me to work at odd hours of the day.

Perhaps one day you will go out into the real world and see that honest and law abiding people work around the clock.

Unico & Syscom3 I've never said that Ms Reed was wrong in anyway, and I've never blamed her, the victim for what happened to her, because in no way was it her fault, all I was wondering is why was she out walking by herself at that time of night, just like you wouldn't let your sister walk at that time of night, down dark streets in the middle of the night. And no, I'm not a young kid. I am a college grad with a degree.

To the family of Ms Reed, may god comfort you in your pain, and the cowards who did this to her one day your family will cry for you, as her family has did for her. Ms Reed didn't deserve anything like what you've did to her. How would you feel if your mother or sister was taken in this matter like a dog?, I'm sure you don't care, and your probably reading these blogs, and feel you've gotten away with something, but little do you know God has the last word for you, and anyone who may have any info about what happen please call WeTip @ 800-78-CRIME, and let's get justice for Ms. Reed and her family.
