Post editorial, March 1, 2005
Post reports, February 28, 2005.
Review of reporting on February homicides. There were twelve homicides in the county in February; eleven are being investigated by county police, one by Greenbelt police.

The county police department issues press releases for most county homicides, but does not do a particularly good job of making them all available online. Currently there are press releases online for only seven of the February homicides.

In addition to a month-end summary, the Examiner posted information on a current basis about ten of the homicides; most or all of those stories are still online.

The Gazette currently has online reports on eleven of the homicides (all but the most recent, last night).

The Post reported all twelve homicides on a current basis, and there were obituaries or funeral notices in the Post for seven victims.

The print edition of the Times reported about three of the February homicides; no reports were or are online.

WRC and WJLA each reported about half of the Febrary homicides and keep thir reports online. WTOP and WUSA each reported about a third. WTTG had reports on about half, but they are difficult to track because they remove information from their website within hours of posting it.
