Murder on the rise

On April 7, the city had its 12th homicide of the year as a 30-year-old female was found dead in a home on SW 60th Street. Few details were known in the following days. Was this a drug-related homicide? A domestic dispute? Or maybe a murder related to the city’s increase in gang activity? All
