Approximately 100 cases of homicide followed by suicide in North Carolina were analyzed. Analysis was done in regard to whether the victim-offender were members of the same family, friends, acquaintances or strangers. Victim-offender relationships were also examined with regard to age, sex & race. Results were then compared with victim-offender relationships in approximately 1,000 criminal homicide cases in North Caroline during 1972 & 1977 in which the offenders did not commit suicide.
