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.

Does anyone understand the psycho-babble of some of these posts? I'm sure Snuggs got what was coming to him, and the world is a better place.

All yal is some idiots out there on each other'S headS bored, desperate for ghetto fame, and FIGHTIN' broke! I hear yal mad at EACH OTHER over money and women! Whats the problem? 90% of inglewood kids grow up livin in big houses and gated communities! it's all out there boys! Most Family gang members dont even like each other and definitely there is no trust! That hood was the tops in the 70's-90's when respect was due. What happen to those cats? jail for ballin? But now, from what is on the grapevine, it aint nothin left in that hood but ah bunch of poor, lazy, spoiled young men and women from 14 to 30 who have found a way to waist time, and not accept the fact that they began ruining their lives long ago! And WONT live to WIN! And wont just MOVE ON with life! "ain-no-mo-luv in the inglewood blood gangs," but for the chosen few!
Stupid ways dont get money, or nothing, and killin ah man dont make you one! hell, ah 8 year old child could threaten people, whine, cry, and pull ah trigger to kill! Guess thats the difference between "Gang-banging" and being a "Gangster." plus, aint nobody said nothin about the MOTHER neither! A woman who had to have watched all of her, love and hard earned investments in her boy come to a tragic and more than likely "foreseen" ending!

FOOLS NEED TO STOP WAITIN TILL 32 TO BE GROWN! FAMILY MEANS UNITY. RIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT.......
CORY and others lives have been waisted for nothing! absoloutly nothing! its all, totally allllll, baaaaaad! rest in peace CORY!

REAL TALK MEN

IM sorry you all but if you a banger and get smoked, you going to hell for eternity. for realll.

baby bobo stop low key banging please. you say i am hiding?from ignorance yes. I would rather obtain knowledge then engage in ignorance. The black man needs to wake up and stop making lame excuses. This guy was a blood gang member and WE all know,what one must do to maintain membership is this criminal enterprise. LET try stop fooling white readers with undercover codes and start being REAL to our selves .....p.s I would never hide from a gang called family ....107street is off this

Black Men!!!! when will you wake up from the curse of Cain? the first murder was made by the first born of Adam and Eve. The killing of his brother Able was a result of anger over Able's gift... the sacrificial lamb.
Those of you who continue to live as Cain and taking life will die like him for eternity.
Turn away from your hatred of yourself and know that the curse of Cain can be broken by the acceptance of God as your Lord and Savior.
The assult against you by society will be taken care of. that's why you were given the sign, the hair of the lamb. the same hair that jesus took upon himself when he came onto the world to save all form our sins.
Gods promise to you was that that sign was for who ever would do you harm seven times worse would be done unto them.
but if you are out there robbing,stealing, killing then you are still under the curse of Cain.
BREAK THE CURSE MY BROTHA!!!!! Read it for yourself. It's the second story in the bible. The first murder because of sin that entered into the world.

TO EVERYONE BEING NEGATIVE ON THIS POST....YOU NEED TO JUST CHILL AND RESPECT THE FAMILY OF CORY SMITH! IF THAT WERE SOMEONE THAT YOUV'E LOST IN YOUR FAMILY, I AM ALMOST CERTAIN THAT YOU WOULD FEEL THE SAME TOO! RESPECT CORY WHETHER HE WAS A GANG MEMBER OR NOT...ALL THAT HELL TALK, YOU MAY BE GOING THERE ALSO, SO TRY AND NOT JUDGE....REST IN PEACE, CORY HARRY SMITH MARCH 13,1980-OCTOBER 1, 2009. I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU CORY! JadieCakes...

I LOVE YOU CORY...
FYI, CORY WAS SAVED....

SNUGGS,I Love you my real friend,homie,brother..my n@#$%!! I'll never forget the time we had together back to back in our adolescent years,your free now. spread your wings and fly... No one Knows the mind and ways Of the Almighty God,so your destiny is in his hands.I knew you and ur heart!you were a good,real person regardles of the live's we lived coming up through this cruel dark world in ah struggle for survival,your work is done here God has added you to his army of Soulja's in Heaven!! It was Jesus who said,"You worry about cleaning the outside of the cup,when really you should be concerned about the inside being clean because their is where you would drink from.."
