Why killers are getting away with murder

Authorities in Buffalo cleared only 39 percent of homicides from 2010 to 2014 and that solve rate has been steadily declining. In part two of our report, Jim Heaney of Investigative Post and Steve Brown of WGRZ explain the reasons for the low rate, which include a decline in the police department’s homicide squad and a lack of cooperation from witnesses, and sometime victims. Some also fault prosecutors for not being aggressive enough.
