Kansas City 2023 Homicide #16: Stats Trending After Deadly Stabbing

A killing this afternoon brings us to an important turning point early in the year . . .


At this date on the calendar in February 2021 there were only 15 homicides . . . This latest fatality offers yet another indication that the local crisis isn't getting any better and, even worse, the topic isn't a major focus of upcoming elections.

And all of this in spite of a HISTORIC 4 year homicide uptick wherein KCMO suffered the deadliest & 2nd deadliest years in all of this cowtown's history.

Here's the first report . . .
