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.

Hey boo, i'm realy missing you and this sh** is very hard to deal with. I know that you had nothing to do wit what's going on and hopefully they find the person or person's that done this to you. If any one knew you, they knew that if you did something than it was done and that you would man up to your word, but this wasn't right and wasn't you.
I know that your not suffering any more and your in a better place but every one is missing you. Always, look down on us and send us your blessing, and I know when things get to hard that you'll be there to help us lift our sprits. That's why god took you to make you our own personal angel.
Your family is holding it down but everyone is hiding the pain in there on way. For me, I just sit and smoke, and think about all the stuff we had or did together, sometimes i would call your aunt's or someone just to feel closer to you. Sometimes I get mad cause I wish you would've talked to someone insted of trying to be the man you were. sometimes you have to bow down when you don't want to and in this case you should have just let them think what they want and you shoulda got on for awhile. Eventally they would have found who they were lookin for and you would have been home with us, but than again no one can change god's plans for you. There's so many emotion and I don't know how to handle them. I just want you to know that we all loved you and we miss you greatly. there's no one that can take your place.
what i don't understand is how they haven't caught any one yet. Your shooting and them getting away and the police being there just at the time even b4 the family made it out to get to you don't make sense to me, and you were in the yard.... what the hell is really going on. someone saw something and if not they stayed there to watch everything. but know that god saw them and no one is givin up on you and what ever we find to help the police wit, will be done. I love you and always watch over us. We'll miss you Kevin C. Shallowhorn.
