Suffolk County Has 10-Year Low in Homicides



    Two West Texas brothers have been rescued from 50-foot deep water retention pipe where the boys became stranded after using homemade devices to rappel to the bottom.

    Suffolk County has experienced a 10-year low in homicides.

    Newsday says the county had 23 killings last year. That's the same number recorded in 2011 — and a dramatic reduction from the 50 killings recorded in 2010.

    In neighboring Nassau County, homicides rose from 23 in 2011 to 28 in 2012.
    Overall, Suffolk County's violent crime fell nearly 4 percent last year.
