BRPD: Murder rate fell in city by end of 2012
BATON ROUGE - Police in Baton Rouge release early crime estimates for the past year today, showing the city saw a slight increase in killings from 2011.
According to early 2012 numbers, Lt. Don Kelly said 67 murders were reported in the city. He said that's up from last year's total of 64.
