4. The Persistent Drug Dealer


Stacy Davis allegedly watched a woman nearly die from an overdose caused by the drugs he gave her. A few hours later, though, he gave her more of the same, police say.

Soon after she was found dead in a trash heap, hidden under a discarded television.

3. The Youngest Homicide Victim


The 33rd homicide victim in 2013 is by far the youngest.

Two-year-old Isiah Barber died after his father, Zachary Barber, allegedly struck him in the chest.

The father reportedly admitted to police that he had hit his child -- with a strike that ended up being fatal.
