EPISODE 65 – THE HOMICIDE REPORT WITH NICOLE SANTA CRUZ

In our 65th episode, we chat with Nicole Santa Cruz (@nicolesantacruz), formerly of the Los Angeles Times, and now a reporter for underserved communities in the Southwest with ProPublica (@propublica). Nicole and I discuss none other than the LAT’s Homicide Report, for which she spent over eight years tracking homicides in L.A. County, attempting to “put a face to the name” of people in Los Angeles whose lives were taken by murder or homicide crimes. We discuss the impact of homicides on families and communities in L.A., as well as common misconceptions about victims and their families based on “where they come from” or live, the Victim’s Compensation Program, and more. Learn more about the Homicide Report in Los Angeles here.
