more ineptitude by Patch - it never occurred to the editor who put this together that the community might want to know more about a murder and he didn't bother to call homicide until today. Great reporting, dude. BTW - your competitors DID NOT report a murder. Maybe they called the Sheriff instead of just "calling it in?"

Would you be happier to have found out there was no error in the story and somebody had in fact been the victim of a violent homicide? Mis-reporting is common. Needless concern is nothing to make light of, but the concern for the crime rate and homicides in WeHo remains higher than normal/average for our City which has always had a higher than average crime rate than the rest of most of Greater Los Angeles. I am glad to hear there was no homicide, but with with the Plummer Park Incidents and the double-hit coming with the Bus Driver shot and a person Stabbed on nearby Orlando (I believe), I don't think anyone who was concerned after first reading this story, feel any more safe and secure had there not been this error in this one story, given all the other recent stories (and decaying corpses found - stories I found too disturbing to get into the details of those stories) that have become so common recently.

You bet misreporting on Patch is common. Look at the election stuff the get wrong - they can't even get the numbers and order of candidates right. It's a fine thing that now murders took place, but that's a lot like reporting "dog bites man" instead of the other way around. no news may be good news to you, but in journalism reporting no news as is amatuerish.
