More Men, Family Violence, in Domestic Violence Homicides this Year

Posted Dec. 28, 2011, 5 p.m. by Laura Amico | Leave a Comment

Domestic violence experts in DC watched homicide reports closely this year, culling the details of every case to determine whether murder victims were also domestic violence victims.

Of 108 reported homicides this year, 13 victims have been killed in domestic violence attacks, according to records kept by the DCCADV and DC SAFE. Twelve domestic violence homicides were reported in all of last year, in comparison. Though the increase is slight, domestic violence experts are worried.

"It's just alarming to me," Loudermilk said. "We are not exactly sure what's going on."
