Abstract

Familicide and familicide-suicide have not been extensively documented or adequately defined in forensic and psychiatric literature. Such incidents occupy a distinct epidemiological niche and are often precipitated by financial stressors. We present a cluster of 3 such cases, all of which occurred within a 4-month period in Los Angeles County, Calif. The dynamics of these cases are evaluated relative to the literature.
