Description

A six-month investigation by CBC News revealed that "65 young men were killed in a gang war that started in 1990 and was escalating." Until then, police had said there were 50 gang-related murders, most of them unsolved. By building a database, CBC News discovered that many of the killings were linked "in a complex web of revenge, retaliation and contract killings."
