Woman shot in the head in Roxbury recently died the next day , I notified you of this.

Also why are you posting this with three days left in the year?

Unfortunately, there is still an official question as to whether that is a homicide or a suicide, or has that changed?

I never saw mention to a suicide on Fox 25 or the globe. All it said was homicide unit investigating no comment on circumstance.

I read “woman shot and killed in Warren gardens” we can be like 99.5% sure that’s a homicide. Especially given the time and location.

I actually dislike when BPD tries to clean up the number as they always foo. That woman found in Black Falcon Pier was a homicide too. There are a few other this year and it just seems like BPD would rather fudge the numbers...

Like last year it was at least 39 homicides and several outlets reported 39, but then others report 37. It’s just misdirection

It is usually the medical examiner that ultimately determines the cause of death not the police.

And remember to say a special prayer for the nurses , doctors and EMTs or the number of victims would be tripled.

As I grew up in this city I realized my life was unprotected in this cold city everyone on that board looks like me and my family, friends my community is unsafe and nobody will try to help us. So stay brave and push for your goals I do it for the legacy of over 70 of my Deceased friends souls. I miss y’all I love all of y’all. Mattapan, Dorchester, Roxbury. 70’s 80’s 90’s 00’s.

Pretty insane that "white Boston" is a large city with, apparently, zero murder victims.
