Abstract

Very little Australian and international literature has focused on homicides between friends and acquaintances. This study addresses that gap by examining circumstances and characteristics of homicides involving friends and acquaintances in Australia. It also seeks to determine whether the category of friends and acquaintances is a homogenous group.
