2010 Homicides: July

July was another painful month. I have eleven names to list. The majority of the crimes took place in and around July Fourth. I do not think that is what the holiday is intended for, but it seems that some people do not handle the change of routine, the use of alcohol and the increased exposure to others that occur during the holidays very well.

Wilmer Perez, 17--Michael B.K. Butler, 32--Akeem Y Wilson, 15--Decarlos Henderson, 30 --Craig K Sowell, 26--Exiquio Martinez, 43--Oladimeji Oladipo, 25--Ronnie O Hughes, 23--Stephon J Robinson, 21--Nicholas Dutcher, 30--Keith Q Wilkens, 25

The cases of Dutcher and Oladipo were recently in the news as suspects processed through the court system. Both doers are now incarcerated for lengthy sentences.

We are now over half way through 2010's months--there are five more months of Kansas City, MO homicide victims to list.

Dear The Observer,
While the heat and role of substances do seem likely to contribute, I still think it is terribly sad.

My condolences to the families of Wilmer, Akeem, Decarlos, Craig, Exiquio, Oladimeji, Ronnie, Stephon, Nicholas, and Keith.

Ann T:

Thank you for faithfully stopping by and taking note.

As the names pile up, it impresses me further that we have a REAL PROBLEM here--a problem with more facets than the law enforcement facet.
