If you browsed one of the city's crime lists online Friday morning, you would think Chicago was in the middle of a record breaking year with only 11 homicides in 2014. Chicago Police said Friday they are experiencing a "temporary technology glitch" that causes some cases to not appear when users search one of the department's most popular datasets. Of this year's 74 Chicago homicides, eight, or about 10 percent, did not show up in a RedEye search this week of the department dataset for crime dating back to 2001.

For four years, RedEye has been mapping locations of Chicago homicides both online and in the newspaper. Over the years, readers have wanted to know more about homicides and RedEye's data collection methods. Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions. How does RedEye count homicides? RedEye collects information about homicides from the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office, which performs autopsies on bodies to determine the causes of death. If the Medical Examiner's Office rules that a person died of a homicide in Chicago, RedEye will log the death in its database.
