2009 Wisconsin Domestic Violence Homicide Report

Continuing the work launched in 2000 with publication of the first Wisconsin Domestic Violence Homicide Report, this edition details domestic violence-related homicides in the calendar year 2009. This brief accounting in no way represents the victims’ full lives. Within the limitations of readily available public information, we have endeavored to construct as accurate a description as possible of key events and circumstances related to each homicide.

2008 Wisconsin Domestic Violence Homicide Report

This edition details domestic violence-related homicides in the calendar year 2008. This brief accounting in no way represents the victims’ full lives. That would require a far more detailed inquiry, in-depth study of official case records, and conversations with family and friends left behind. Within the limitations of readily available public information we have endeavored to construct as accurate a description as possible of key events and circumstances related to each homicide.
