We've just started publishing our annual Year in Review package, a collection of investigations, feature stories, data visualizations and guest columns looking back on homicide in D.C. in 2012. It is not an exaggeration to say that we wouldn’t be publishing today without you, our readers and supporters.

Over the summer, this site almost closed when our founding editor, Laura Amico, accepted a fellowship at Harvard University. The community rallied, and we raised enough money to keep the site alive. We hired three interns—Jonah Newman, Penny Ray and Sam Pearson—who have been running the site since September.

So, as we head into 2013, we’d like to thank everyone who pitched in and who spread the word. We look forward to the year ahead, as we continue to mark every death, remember every victim and follow every case.

You can see the full Year in Review collection here.
