1st homicide in Lawrence County?

I find that I tend to gravitate toward the crime/detective-type genre when I have free time to watch television shows. I grew up watching Columbo, Matlock, Murder She Wrote, Father Dowling, Perry Mason. I can’t keep track of how many different versions of Law and Order, CSI, and other type of criminal profiling, crime scene investigation, and detective-solving-mystery-type programs continue to be created, so at any time, there seems to be plenty of options from which to choose. 

In the same way, headlines about these kinds of topics catch my eye, no matter the year they were written, and such was the case for today’s topic, found in the Aug. 13, 1908, edition of the Deadwood Pioneer-Times, which had reprinted an article from the July 15, 1876, edition of the Black Hills Pioneer. The headline reads, “Murder of John Hinch of Pioche, Nevada First Homicide in the Diggings.”

The article begins, “It

Obituary project makes homicide victims more than just stats | News …

Sept. 13, 2016 was a bloody day in Philadelphia as five people were shot or stabbed dead. One of the shooting victims was Trina Singleton’s 24-year-old son, Darryl.

In this city of 1.6 million people that tallied 269 homicides last year, Darryl’s death earned him a few lines near the end of a newspaper story, his loss overshadowed by the death of a 21-year-old cousin of rap star Meek Mill.

“He was totally overlooked,” Trina Singleton said. “There were so many people shot that day, he was a number.”

Now a new website is working to show that Darryl and victims like him are more than statistics. Since the Philadelphia Obituary Project went live in June, it has posted more than 30 in-depth obituaries of city homicide victims from the past 18 months.

“We want to talk about the lives of the people, not their deaths. To dignify them. To humanize them,” said Cletus
