Save this Google Map

Homicide Watch is an awesome website that records and reports on every homicide in Washington DC.

As well as reporting on every homicide Homicide Watch marks each murder's location on a Google Map. Readers can click on any marker to view details about the victim and then click through to read the report and any follow up reports on the murder.

Homicide Watch has now launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to run a special one-year project. Homicide Watch want to use their platform to help guide journalism students through the steps of crime reporting. In order to do this the organisation needs to raise $40,000. Donors can give as little as $10 and have one week left in which to make their donations.
