The 2008 year was the worst year ever for deaths of RSOs, Persons accused of sex offenses and other related deaths. This year brought so many new circumstances that we have had to restructure our statistical methods to be able to report what has happened.
In 2008, of those murdered or killed, not in jails, prisons or civil commitment centers, the most dangerous state is Florida where 5 persons were murdered.
PA and TX reported 3, CA, MD, MA, NC, and TN each reported 2. AZ, CO, DE, GA, IL, IN, IO, KS, KY, ME, MO, NM, NY, UT, WA each reported 1.

TOTALS: 45 139 184 Total persons killed or murdered
Now, in addition to the above deaths, there is another group of folks who died which we call "Other Deaths." While the circumstances under which these folks died vary somehow they died in an incident involving a registered sex offender or a person accused of a sex offense. The most common circumstance is when a RSO or person accused of a sex offense, commits suicide and just before or at his/her suicide they kill other folks (Murder-Suicides), these are those folks. Finally, there are a few other odd circumstances other than Murder-Suicides and all can be viewed on the "Consolidated Deaths Listing" under the section "Other Deaths."

Remember, all of the details and verifiable news report of each incident, is available in the blogs accessible from the "Consolidated Deaths Listing."
PS: 2009 deaths are not included in the above, and so far, there are 6 more RSOs killed or murdered.
PPS: These statistics are by no means complete, what is reported here is only those where an incident was reported by a newspaper and someone sent us the link. We are quite sure there are others which were not reported by the media.
