We started the 50 notorious cases blog on Nov. 2 to mark the 120th birthday of Orange County. The end of the year is a time for taking stock, and we wanted to know how modern day sensibilities would rank these terrible crimes.
The series has received both widespread praise as well as some criticism, including comments that we have been insensitive to survivors.
That was not our intent.
We understand that grief for those left behind remains. But these stories are a part of our history, and our shared community experience.
We finished publishing our list of 52 cases on Wednesday.
Now, it’s your turn.
