How Likely Are You to Be Murdered?

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — How likely are you to be murdered? A study of five years of FBI data to determine which states have the highest murder rates by safewise.com says the good news is that the U.S. reports lower murder rates than most countries. The bad news is that murder is nearly twice as common as the national average in five states, including Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama where each reported a murder rate nearly double that of the national average of 4.9 homicides per every 100,000 people. Mississippi ranked 2nd for its murder rate compared to other states. This was 3.1 points above the national average of 4.9 homicides per 100,000 individuals.
