When it comes to notorious murders, there are basically two categories: solved and unsolved murders. The other breakdown of notorious murders is premeditated, felony murder, manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter. Murders are also categorized by degree. For example, willful, premeditated murder is considered first degree murder.
In California, the murder crime rate, according to FBI statistics of 2015, ranked 21st nationally. The California rate in 2015 was 4.8 murders per 100,000 people. However, it is important to study the murder rate of California by comparing the numbers according to counties like Los Angeles, Ventura, San Bernardino, Orange and Riverside. At present, San Bernardino ranks as California’s most dangerous city for violent crimes.
