Report: Illinois Has The Worst Rate Of Solving Homicides In U.S.

A new report finds Illinois has the worst rate of solving homicides in the country. The group Murder Accountability Project tracks unsolved homicides. Its new report found Illinois solved about 37 percent of the more than 750 homicides from last year. That’s significantly lower than the national rate of 61.5 percent reported by the FBI. The Chicago Police Department says it’s adding additional detectives over the next couple of years to help solve cases.
