Status update: No homicides for more than two weeks?
If you keep up with L.A. Now, you have no doubt noticed that homicides have not stopped occurring in Los Angeles County. Yet the last post on this blog is the Feb. 7 killing of Ronald Barron, posted almost two weeks ago.
The Homicide Report relies on a spreadsheet released by the county coroner's office, usually once per week, detailing deaths in the county that have been classified by the coroner as homicides.
We have been requesting this document for the last two weeks but have not yet received it. Once we do, we will continue to update this blog faithfully. In the mean time, you can follow L.A. Now's "crime & courts" and "homicide report" feeds.
