We want to hear from our readers: What does the Homicide Report mean to you?

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Homicide Report. Since 2007, we have seen our site grow from weekly posts with names of victims to a database recording more than 15,000 deaths since the year 2000. 

The Homicide Report is a public service: a story for every victim.

Our readers have always been a crucial to chronicling homicide in Los Angeles County. 

You have written more than 100,000 comments over the years; friends, family members and witnesses to homicide have brought more humanity to the report. Others engage in robust conversations about the impact and causes of violence, in an effort to make sense of it all. 

More than once, comments and readers have become the basis for a story. A grief counselor found that the Homicide Report helped her process the murder of her mother at a bus stop. A son searching for his father in 2014 found him on the Homicide Report, and reached out to us for answers. 

As we mark the 10th anniversary of our project, we want to hear from you. How the Homicide Report has affected you? Call and leave us a voicemail or text us your story at (818)-539-7178. Or reach us by email at homicidereport@latimes.com
