Most murders aren't committed by strangers says NYPD-NY Post

1/5/14, "Odds that you’ll be killed by a stranger in NYC on the decline," NY Post,Brad Hamilton

"Just 29 victims of the city’s record-low 334 slayings in 2013 did not know their killers, according to NYPD homicide stats....The 29 victims of strangers involve only cases in which cops ID’d the killer, so the final tally could tick up as cops solve more murders....Former Commissioner Ray Kelly attributed the final murder number of 334, the lowest since reliable record-keeping began in 1963, to “Operation Crew Cut,” which targeted trigger-happy youth gangs, and other police initiatives."
