Conspiracy theorists content that the FBI has reported zero deaths in Newtown, CT, even though 27 people were murdered in the Newtown mass shooting on Dec 14th 2012. They point to the FBI report "Crime in the United States 2012": http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/uc...by_connecticut_by_city_2012.xls#disablemobile The FBI report is based on the UCRs (Uniform Crime Reports) created by various state law enforcement and other bodies. http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/uc...s.-2012/resource-pages/about-ucr/aboutucrmain The Connecticut 2012 UCR has this on page 4: http://www.dpsdata.ct.gov/dps/ucr/data/2012/Crime In Connecticut COMPLETE 2012.pdf So it's a little hard to see how the FBI might have missed this. Looking in the actual UCR reveals the answer: The report quite specifically notes the 27 victims (26 at the school, plus Lanza's mother), but excludes them from the statistics for Newton. Instead they are included in "State Police Misc", because the crimes at the school fell under the jurisdiction of the state police, not the local police. So it seems that as they are not assigned to a specific town, they do not appear in the FBI table. The UCR is primarily a statistical tool and does not have 100% coverage. The 27 deaths are included in the state total of 144 on the FBI web page, just not in the local totals, which only includes 110 for the 92 listed communities. The CT UCR also explicitly includes the victims in the state totals, (page 11) And on page 12: And on pages 14 and 25, in fact the Newtown murders are mentioned 14 times in the Connecticut UCR.
