Crime Mapping Update - 27 April



Well, it's been a busy couple of weeks since I last updated the crime map. It's going to get awfully bad once the summer rolls in, so if someone wants to give me a hand, let me know. All I need someone else to do is troll a couple of sources and email me digested crime reports.

Example:

Authorities said a man there pulled out a gun and shot a woman three times after the two got into a fight.

None of her injuries were to be life threatening.

Fetuses found in Algiers sewer line Coroner to determine if they were stillborn Saturday, January 13, 2007 From staff reports Plumbers flushing a sewer line in Algiers on Friday afternoon discovered two tiny human bodies that appeared to be fetuses, the Orleans Parish coroner's office said. The male and female will be examined today in an attempt to determine whether they were stillborn or born alive, chief coroner's investigator John Gagliano said. The bodies were found in a line that serves four apartments in the 4100 block of Maple Leaf Drive, near Woodland and Gen. de Gaulle drives. The coroner's office estimated the fetuses had had not been in the drain for long. The apparent fetuses were not decomposed. They might have been twins, Gagliano said. http://www.nola.com/news/t-p/frontpage/index.ssf?/base/news-19/1168673188293640.xml&coll=1

And please not, I'm not including the fetuses in my (larger) murder count. The paper is still at 62. I'm in the 70's.
