  • THE TOLL: Detectives look at caseload list.
KATV features the work of overburdened Little Rock homicide detectives attempting to solve the city's rising number of homicides The report includes this five-year summary: 173 slayings in the last five years, with 42 still unsolved, or almost one in every four.

Fearful witnesses are one obstacle to arrests, detectives say.

They report no leads at all on the city's most recent gun death — the July 4 shooting of Marco Avila in Southwest Little Rock.
