Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Wednesday, December 19, 2021

One of the persistent challenges of blogging is coming up with a reliable supply of material to write about.

Unfortunately, there’s little danger of Los Angeles Times crime reporter/blogger Jill Leovy coming up dry. She maintains The Homicide Report, where she’s attempting to create a running permalinked chronicle of each murder committed in Los Angeles County to date.

The bulk of the postings consist of simple police-blotter reports noting a random killing. But it looks like Leovy contributes some follow-up reporting, as in this look at a family’s lingering grief six months after a death.

It’s not exactly a revelation to see the steady stream and sheer volume of homicides in LA, but viewing it in this format is certainly sobering.
