Not to brag but,
"Police haven't ruled the latest finding a homicide, but
if they do so, it would be the 97th this year."
Nice pace so far, killers, keep up the good work!
The winning local record to squash is 1993 with 213 murders.
We're right on track to beat last year's bittersweet 153,
so when I say beat, I mean *lifeless*
otherwise it'll just get filed under "Attempted."
This heat should really help crunch some numbers.
