Tracking homicides in Chicago is an ongoing project of the RedEye. This site is updated regularly with information from the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office, the Chicago Police Department and the Chicago Breaking News Center. Information is subject to change. Data points appear Thursdays in RedEye’s print edition.

EveryBlock was a source for 2008 homicide data.

This application is based on Homicide Report, created for the Los Angeles Times by Ken Schwencke. It was adapted for use in Chicago by Ryan Mark, Chris Groskopf, Joe Germuska and Brian Boyer.
