In week that NYT twice fronted Wesleyan killing, four murders in NYC

In the same week that the NYTimes ran two front-page stories on the murder of Johanna Justin-Jinich (Friday, Saturday), four people were murdered within NYC, according to statistics released by the NYPD today.

The NYPD releases the statistics based on a Monday-Sunday week, and they are preliminary, subject to revision. There are usually about 10 murders each week within the five boroughs (an incredibly low number for a city of 8+ million).

I hope to have more soon on the extent of coverage of those four murders.
