Domestic Violence Homicides
NCCADV tracks deaths which are a result of intimate partner violence. Our list includes victims killed by their current or former intimate partner as well third parties killed because of intimate partner violence. Intimate partners include same-sex and opposite-sex intimate partners. To let us know about a domestic violence homicide that we should include on our list, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope that this list helps legislators and other policy makers understand the cost of domestic violence and their power to make change. Policies that prevent violence and protect victims save lives.
