Area murder research workers haven't been as busy this year.
In 2006 and 2007, there had been at least three murders in the country by March. But 2008 have seen only one murder -- Antony Castro, 46, of Davenport -- who was fatally stabbed earlier this calendar month in his apartment.
"I'm glad things have got slowed down in that peculiar area," said Maj. Microphone Brown of the George C. Scott County Sheriff's Office, though he could not state why murders were down.

"We cognize who did it," he said. "We just don't have got the grounds to turn out it."
The longer a lawsuit stays open, the harder it is to solve, police force said.
