LAT Homicide Blog Takes a Break?

As we reported yesterday, the LAT Homicide Blog is on hiatus as of November 13th.

And their readers are pissed.

We were under the impression that this blog – particularly this one – would be a group effort. That staffers would all pitch in to make sure that all homicides were covered in some capacity.

An LAT staffer sent us this note, “Well, Jill [Jill Leovy] is on book leave and Ruben [Ruben Vives] is a Metpro, but I thought we were still doing it with everyone chipping in.”

Guess not.

Is the LAT homicide blog important?
