Crosses & Crime: Most Read Stories of the Year
Palos Patch presents the stories most read by you in 2012.
This list is by the numbers, folks.
I dug through the reports and found the stories that catch the most attention, according to our fancy data.
As to be expected, the murders of John and Maria Granat in a Palos Township home remains an important story for readers. A motorcyclist who crashed on Southwest Highway creep up to a top spot later in the year.
Readers also responded to Palos Patch's coverage of bald eagles in a local forest preserve.
The top spot, however, goes to our coverage of a holiday cross removed from an Alsip water tower.
