Though it was declared in 2012, the death is considered the city’s 48th homicide of 2011. Clark said because Rukhmani’s death was considered suspicious by police almost immediately after an investigation was launched, it will be included in last year’s numbers.
“She died in 2011. It will be labelled a 2011 death and that’s the way we’ll be moving forward from this day on as far as our reporting,” he said.
Previously, city police included a homicide in the year it was declared. In 2011, two deaths that happened in previous years were counted among that year’s homicides.
Clark did not provide a reason for the change in the police department’s homicide reporting practice, though he acknowledged that police will report the killing as a 2012 homicide to Statistics Canada.
