I'm in the north. I can be accompanied by violent crimes, a relative direction, or a body of fresh water.

I'm in the east. I can be accompanied by a wiild aanimal, a cardinal direction, or a place by the water.

I'm in the south. I can be accompanied by a financial transaction, an African religion or overflows of water.

I'm in the west. I can be accompanied by a car brand, sources of water, or some flowing water.

What are we? Where are we located?
