Each image was captured in a moment — at the DMV for a new license, at graduation, at a wedding, on a sports field, holding a baby. Each life ended violently.
Since it started eight years ago, The Homicide Report has had the goal of a story for every victim. Now we are expanding that goal to include a photograph for every victim. So far we've gathered pictures of 1,573 victims, about 9% of those killed. Help us do better. If you have a photo of a homicide victim to share, email it to Nicole.SantaCruz@latimes.com.
