40. Yeah, I've seen that hypothesis as well. "It's in the water!"
I am struck by the seeming isolation of a rather large city, and perhaps the lack of "exurban" development; hence, the large expanses of land for outdoor activities. Some "ecopsychologists" suggest that if more people spent more time in rural nature, they would become better adjusted, and this would result in lower violent crime rates. IIRC, El Paso has traditionally had lower violent crime rates, suggesting whatever causes the low murder rates has been at work for some time.
