Impacts of COVID-19 on Intimate Partner Homicide-Suicide and Familicide-Suicide between 2018-2023

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

This project included the collection of Intimate Partner Homicide-Suicide (IPHS) and Familicide cases between 2018-2023. The study examines the effect of COVID-19 on the frequency and severity of IPHS and Familicide with a special emphasis on partnerships that had children (regardless of whether the children were killed in the event or not). During the pandemic an increase in firearm purchases, along with societal and financial stressors put women and children in vulnerable positions.
