January 28, 2013|By Tracy Swartz | RedEye

Chicago on Sunday reached 41 homicides, surpassing the January 2012 homicide toll, a RedEye analysis of preliminary police data found.

A 25-year-old woman died Sunday after suffering head trauma in the 7700 block of South Morgan Street in Auburn Gresham, police said. She was the 41st homicide victim of the year, RedEye determined. Forty homicides were logged in January 2012.

With seven homicides, Saturday was the deadliest day of the year. The city recorded two double homicides Saturday and three other killings. The last time Chicago saw a day with seven homicides was Nov. 5, 2011, when a triple homicide and four other killings were logged, according to RedEye data. The deadliest days of 2012 were Feb. 19 and Aug. 18, when six homicides were logged apiece.
