|Title||Familicide-suicide: A cluster of 3 cases in Los Angeles County|
|Published in||American Journal of Forensic Medicine & Pathology, Vol. 32, No. 4|
|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.|
