    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — In a collaboration with CBS News, CBS Sacramento is examining why crime is often going without punishment in our country. The national homicide clearance rate is at an all-time low, according to FBI data. Barely half of the murder cases in the United States get solved. In the mid-1960s, more than 90 percent of murders were solved, generally resulting in an arrest. By 1990, the percentage fell into the sixties. And our analysis with CBS News also discovered a difference by race.  The national homicide clearance rate for White victims keeps improving while the rate of solving murders for Black and Hispanic victims is much lower. But Sacramento County is bucking the trend. Instead of making arrests in five out of 10 murders, which was roughly the national average in 2020, the Sacramento sheriff’s department made arrests in more than 7 out of 10 murders. That arrest rate has increased to eight out of 10 homicide cases so far this year. What can other agencies learn from Sacramento County? CBS13 got an inside look...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Just days after a boat fire on the Sacramento River, the concern is growing that it could happen again. There are dozens of other abandoned boats that are in danger of sinking on Sacramento waterways, and new efforts are underway to haul them away before they create a catastrophe. READ MORE: ‘A Miracle Of Nature’: Rare Planet Alignment Best Seen Friday MorningAbandoned boats can be an environmental ticking time bomb. “These vessels contain pollutants like oil and other hazmats like PCBs,” said Natasha Drane, a Sacramento County legislative officer.

The 85-foot All-American is the latest example. A blaze on Tuesday caused major damage that took hours to extinguish. Now, an oil boom surrounds the vessel which is partially submerged on the Sacramento River near the I-80 bridge that connects West Sacramento and Natomas. “That boat could potentially sit there for a really long time,” Drane said.
