Compiling a list of death…

By far my hardest posting.

Over the last 2.5 years of research for this film and the generic knowledge of murders/deaths that we have sadly come to know, I have decided to amalgamate all previously (but now considered incomplete) published compiliations of South Asian deaths into one list.  It took a fair amount of research, but to my knowledge, this is the most complete list out there as of right now.

I sincerely hope I never have to update it.

This list would not have been possible without the ongoing in-depth reporting of Kim Bolan.  Thank you and keep up the great work Kim.

I would also like to thank R. Dhaliwal for helping me out with research for this sad compilation, your work ethic is inspiring.

Each name on the list has been compiled with a referring article/link.

Though the estimate of South Asian Gang-Related deaths are between 100-130+, I was only able to compile 76.  Many of the missing names have not made the list due to ongoing investigations by law enforcement, so details are not yet released, as well as unidentified and missing/suspected dead South Asians. is a great resource for archived news, this website helped me very much throughout the compiling process.

The list can be found here.
