WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A new list released by The Business Insider puts West Palm Beach as #7 on a ranking of "America's Most Depressing Places".

The local news is full of stories like: "Family Of Slain Ice Cream Man Faces Housing Crisis."

Other places on the "Most Depressing List" include Stockton, Flint, Wichita, the Mahoning Valley of Ohio, Yuma, East St. Louis and Detroit.
