Within this Thread many have brought up the disparity between murder rate figures given by independent media, the police and others. There have also been questions about if homicides where the body was found long after the murder are being tallied for the year they were killed or when found. See some of that here: Varrying Murder Rate Figures.
Continuing, here is a good example of how this still happens. A couple of days ago, we had the murder rate at 380+ but on the TV6 News they said it was 415. Then the Express, the same company that owns the TV6 News, published a totally different figure of 392. The sad thing is that even though it shows as 415 on our site, we can afford to leave it there because murders happen as common as the sun rises each day so you can expect that target number to reached.
