This is the 2nd homicide in the past 24 hours and a hint, amid our dark winter, that we've got a tough year ahead.
Moreover . . .
Unofficially, this latest killing puts us only one murder behind a record setting pace that we reached during in 2020. In January of that year there were around 14 killings by this date.
