City On Pace For Record Murder Rate
The City of Indianapolis recorded 14 homicides during the month of January. At that pace, Indianapolis will record 160 homicides by year's end. The highest number recorded in the City was 161 in 1998. The Ballard administration boasted about a significant drop in the murder rate at the end of last year. There is some dispute over those figures. The administration claimed there were 99 homicides in 2009, while others put the figure as high as 105.
