Abstract

Growth of aggression and violence is an important characteristic of life in modern time. Aggression is directed towards self or other people. Recent researches of our population confirm these observations; numbers of suicides and homicides rise progressively, contrary to previous opinions of inverse proportionate relationship between suicide and homicide rates. There is not much information about female victims of homicide in literature. This is why we tried to give our medicolegal contribution to observations of this phenomenon, assuring that results can improve prevention.
