2013 Reno Area Homicides

What is this?

Murder is sometimes glorified in our culture. It is often, and rightfully feared. But in Reno there are very few homicide statistics available to non law enforcement personnel.
And often there is no follow up on the crimes by the media after the first few days. This website was created as a resource to track information on the facts surounding homicide in the Reno, Nevada metro area.
