Surprising statistics from the Houston Chronicle….

The city of Galveston, for example, had just 32 murders between 2004 and 2009, but solved only 17.

San Antonio’s Bexar County Sheriff’s Office cleared just 39 percent of its homicides, Waco 56 percent and Odessa 52 percent, based on numbers the police agencies provided to the FBI.
