I looked only at the information on Andrea Roan, and noticed that it's wrong. I believe the 1200 block of Washington was a previous address for her. She was ambushed by Ryan Miller behind the apartment building where she lived at the time of the murder, the Cimarron, at 1240 Elizabeth, and her car ended up embedded in the garage at 1252 Elizabeth. If there's anything "fortunate" about this case, it's that brain death from the gunshot was instant and she apparently didn't suffer.

Statistically it is safer to be white.

How many of the Mexicans were American citizens?

This is pretty bad.  In 2010 the murder rate in Denver was 3.6 per 100,000; 47 homicides work out to 7.8 per 100,000 -- more than doubling in one year.  Kind of alarming.

Using Batchgeo.com to create a map which showed all places of the murders would have been more help, imo

I think this would be better with one map with all the locations on it. Then I can zoom in or out myself or click the individual locations for more detail. The way it is, it's really difficult to see any patterns or hot spots.

Nice Job Westword, with all the Google Maps Street View!  I don't get it, Pamela Legg #43 says "Cause of death: Complications of immobilization (pneumonia and pulmonary emboli) due to fracture of right femur", that doesn't sound like a homicide to me???  WTF?

When the coroner rules a death a "homicide," it means that the actions of someone else caused the victim's death -- possibly through negligence and not intentional harm.  If she was "immobilized" then perhaps someone had improperly restrained her, leading to her injury and death.  It's possible that no criminal charges were filed in this person's death but maybe it has become a civil liability matter.
