Montgomery Reaches Another Grim Milestone as Homicides Continue to Rise

Another sad milestone as the 54th Montgomery homicide occurred Sunday (Aug 16) evening at Oak Park in Montgomery. Homicide is simply one human taking the life of another. The Gazette does not limit homicide cases as defined by the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting guidelines. Nor is this report limited to the city limits. Instead, it included the entire county. This overall included two county deaths, one in Ramer (May 20) and the other in Grady (Apr 25). The tally also includes one or more vehicular deaths (Mar 1 and July 1), a stabbing (Apr 14) and a beating (April 12). An MPD employee not on duty was murdered in a domestic case (July 6). Not included is the incident where the MPD returned fire and killed a man who had shot and killed another person (Mar 8). A double homicide where both victims were teenagers occurred off of Hwy 231 below Southern Blvd (Aug 4). Death by other than gunfire is identified.
