Although 412 people were murdered in Chicago in 2013, it is not actually the most dangerous city in the country. When you look at the murder rate per 100,000 residents, which takes into account the population of the city, America’s most dangerous city is New Orleans, with around 57 murders per 100,000 residents. Detroit is the next most dangerous city in the United States, with roughly 48 murders per 100,000 residents. Saint Louis and Baltimore, with 35 and 31 murders per 100,000 residents, are the 3rd and 4th most dangerous American cities, respectively.
The unfortunate truth is that tragedies occur everywhere, in virtually every city. If your home or office has been the site of a scene of violence, Crime Scene Clean-Up can help.
