  1. Andy JS says:

    The Metropolitan Police released a statement recently which put the number of homicides in Greater London during 2011 as 131, and the MurderMap website believes the number was 114. This website says 120, so obviously it isn’t easy to come up with a figure everyone can agree on.

  2. Thanks Andy
    You are absolutely right.
    I think the issues come as a result of incidents that were initially described or charged as either murder of manslaughter, being later downgraded as they went through the criminal justice system. So a murder case gets downgraded to a manslaughter case, or a manslaughter case may have been downgraded to a health and safety violation.

    For instance Ezekiel AMOSU aged 17 died on the 24th January 2011. He was running away from robbers and ran infront of a bus. The defendants (the robbers) in this case were brought to court under manslaughter charges but Ezekiel’s death appears in our teenage murder page and appears in the Met Police FOI murder case release. Some licence is obviously being used to describe a murder.

    It’s also because of the recorded date. For example, Eric Mills died in 2009 but the suspect was only charged in 2011. According to the Met, a small number of the names relate to historical murders, e.g. Michael Porter, said to be a victim of Dennis Nilsen.

  4. MacKenzie says:

    To avoid yourself getting murdered the worst places to live or visit in London are Lambeth with 79 murders in 5 years, followed by Newham (57 murders), Southwark (51 murders) and Hackney (43 murders). And where are all the people going for the London Olympics… Newham one of the worst place sin London for murder and violence.

    Best places in London to avoid getting yourself murdered: Richmond upon Thames with 1 murder in 5 years is the borough with the lowest number, with Kensington and Chelsea (3 murders) and Kingston upon Thames (5 murders).
