Update on Bronx Cold Case

A charge has been made in a case of Detective James Osorio’s that I posted about earlier in the year. Authorities in Montenegro are charging Smail Tulja for the murder of “Mary Beal, a 61-year-old Yugoslav immigrant who was reported missing in New York on Sept. 15, 1990. Three weeks later, her decapitated, dismembered body was found in two bags near the Brooklyn Navy Yard.” According the the article, “the country’s laws do not permit extradition of its citizens,” so they are going to try him there. Article here.

I was looking around for homicide statistics and was once again amazed at what you can find on the internet (thank you, Department of Defense).

Here are murder rates by country. We’re somewhere in the middle, and I was surprised to see Saudi Arabia at the bottom (but that, of course, is more about my ignorance about homicide outside the United States).

Here are murder rates by country going back to 1900!

And here is a link to the most recent crime reports from the FBI. Murder is up 0.3 percent.
