After a relatively high year for homicides in Hamilton in 2013, the city already has its second murder of 2014 after a stabbing of a 56 year old woman at a MacNab street apartment complex. The victim has yet to be identified. A 43 year old woman has been arrested.
With two murders after four days of the year, it looks like the city is already starting out for another high year for murder with 361 days left. Is January a statistically high month for homicide in the city? I always thought summer would have been worse with more people out and interacting, but murder in Hamilton is still a relatively rare and flukey thing.
