I did not realize that 4 of the top 5 states were in the Southeast. A noticeable difference between the Southeast and New England, the Upper Midwest and the Pacific Northwest.

Florida......Known for catchin bodies. For real, only the realest killers are from Florida.
Whether Black-American/West Indian Drug Cliques, Hispanic Drug Cartels, crazy White Serial Killers, or Paranoid gun-totting Whites, Florida has the greatest killers. Many folks wouldn't last a day in Florida without having some sense of street-smarts. Hell, even street-smarts won't save you. Even the collegiate sports teams have the most gangster athletes(I know Arron Hernandez is from CT, but he got his bloodthirst at UF).
