The Town With The Highest Murders In Montana Is Surprising

When it comes to the murder rate in Montana, you have to remember that it won't always be the town that has the highest number of murders.

The rankings will be based on murders per 100,000 people.

The RoadSnacks website is where we found our information, and how they came up with their rankings is that any town with a population over two thousand that had reported a murder to the FBI made the list.

Does that mean there could possibly be a town with a higher murder rate than we're about to show you?

Sure, it's possible, but we doubt it.
