Description

An analysis was conducted on intimate partner homicides occurring between 2005 and 2007 in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts based on a data collection tool (survey) designed by EOPSS for use by the 11 District Attorney’s offices in the state. This report presents findings on the 47 intimate partner (IP) homicide surveys returned to EOPSS by the District Attorneys. For the purposes of this report only, an intimate partner homicide was defined as any homicide where the victim was a spouse, ex-spouse, live-in partner, former live-in partner, boy/girlfriend, or former boy/girlfriend of the assailant (or someone acting under the direction of the assailant).
