Looks like we won't be seeing Law & Order: Rio de Janeiro anytime soon. The Brazilian state has racked up 60,000 murders over the last decade that have gone unsolved and unprosecuted. The number came to light as part of a departmental investigation related to a national plan to improve public safety; the survey also found that 24,000 of those victims remain unidentified, the AP reports.
The city of Rio de Janeiro did form a homicide division, but the investigation found that it boosted the murder solution rate only three percentage points, from 11% to 14%. Brazilian police solve a slim 8% of murders country-wide; the US and European countries report a rate closer to 70% or 80%.
