Homicide Watch

Friday, August 17, 2012


This week came news that the Homicide Watch D.C. might go on hiatus because its founder and proprietor Laura Amico has been awarded the Nieman-Berkman fellowship. Amico is attempting to keep Homicide Watch alive with a Kickstarter campaign to turn the website into a teaching lab for burgeoning crime reporters. In this interview from November, 2011 Brooke talks to Amico about the site's mission and how it works.

You can find the Homicide Watch Kickstarter campaign by following this link.

Has Homicide Watch looked at the getting funding from the Department of Justice's Office of Justice Programs?


or any of the other organizations at Justice that provide grant money...


Perhaps there is someone at DOJ (who is on KS or an NPR listener) that could help you expedite the funding process!

Your blog is too important and needs to spread to every city and jurisidction in the U.S.
