From the NYPD’s 1887 Annual Report

I posted this on my personal blog and I realized I should also put it here. When I was researching my book about the NYPD’s Cold Case Squad, one of the things I did was go down to the Municipal Archives and copy sections from the NYPD’s Annual Reports, going back to 1860.

I wanted to learn everything I could about murder in NYC over the years. This was from a section in the 1887 annual report called “Miscellaneous Statistics.” It’s one of many sad lists I came across.
