“In 2014, the county as a whole ended the year with 34 homicides. That number jumped to 65 in 2016, about a 91 percent increase, according to statistics from the Missouri Highway Patrol.”

What happened somewhere in St. Louis County in 2014?

Alright Dan

“The majority of victims are men, and range in age from 10 to 80 … ”

That narrows it down quite a bit. BTW, 10-year old men?

After adjusting for the statistically common under-reporting (by victims) of Type I offenses….that’s steep.

I noticed that the *average* age of the deceased was 35, but thats hard to square with the rest of the profile, I’d expect a lower age.
