Kanawha County Homicide Map

Erin Beck wrote a roundup of the homicides in Kanawha County in 2015, so I made a map to go along with the information that she collected:

Taking a look at the data, this past year there were 14 homicides (not including this one, because we don’t know where it happened or who did it). 64 percent of those homicides involved guns. Another 21 percent involved knives.

Of the homicides where the victims age was reported, the average age of the victims was 33 years old, with the oldest victim being 52 and the youngest 18.

The average age of those charged with murder was 33.7, with the oldest being 59 and the youngest 18.
