Murders climb in Denver

September 27, 2022

Axios reports that Denver’s record murder rate continues to climb with 53 murders from January to June, a 23% jump from 2021.

And as Denver recorded a four-decade high homicide rate in 2021, Colorado Democrats Yadira Caraveo and Brittany Pettersen voted to weaken the state’s penalty for felony murder.
