Mapping London Teenage Murders from 2005 – 2013 (last update Dec 2012)
The London Teenage Murder report is now updated for each incident on the link to Interactive Map of Teenage Murders in London 2005 to 2013. It has been modified to allow you to review the profile of teenage murder victims for: Location, Age, Sex, Wounding type (Gun, Knife, etc) and Year.
Teenage murder may not provide a reliable indicator of the level of serious and life threatening wounding occurring within the capital. Many life threatening attacks have not resulted in death, sometimes by luck, often by the skills of emergency health services. Thankfully the fatalities over 2009 and 2010 dropped by around a third compared to the last peak in 2007 – 2008; with reductions now down to eight at the end of 2012.
