Not here.  Depending on the year the number of solved homicides (those ending in conviction) is at minimum 67% and goes up to 93%.

I looked it up because I was curious and in the U.S. all violent crime has a 45% arrest rate, with murder being slightly higher at around 60%.  This is not a CONVICTION rate, however, which is much lower and can indicate that the person arrested was often not actually the person who did it, or at least they can't prove it.
