Hi Rah-- Once again thanks for compiling this stuff. And once again, I am making a request for more data (such as newspaper article links) on the homicides you list as "unknown" which the Chronicle doesn't list at all.

Thanks,

Sorry, I didn't see your first request...

The data is taken from the SFPD, via www.crimereports.com. A few months ago the SFPD started recording crime data on the crime reports website, I guess to move ahead technologically from their old crime map. Crime reports isn't really that much more useful though it seems, as there's still a bunch of data missing, and you can only go back so far. Some of those murders I've listed are no longer on crime reports because they are now past the cut off date (currently February 15th). Here's the link:

Just look up homicides, and you'll see some of those 5 murders. I don't know what to think though, because the numbers released by the SFPD to the Chronicle don't include those 5...yet you go to crimereports from the SFPD website, and there they are. So what is it? Do we trust the SFgate map, or the Crimereports map, straight from the SFPD website? It seems you should be able to trust both, but everything is so inconsistent, you never really know. Anyways...I guess we'll find out the final answer at the end of the year.

Rah why do you keep reporting this as a homicide when it was a suicide?
