Times reporters @nicolesantacruz and @irisslee examined L.A. County coroner’s records of all homicides of women over the last three years — nearly 300 deaths.  https://lat.ms/2m4QEHR 

Police have named a suspect in 3 out of 4 killings.

In those cases, the vast majority of victims knew their accused killer.

80% knew the suspect. 20% did not.

Nearly half of the accused were, at some point, in an intimate relationship with the victim; boyfriends, husbands and, often, exes.
