A guiding principle at the Homicide Center is that our work should focus on marginalized and under-represented areas of homicide. Our goal is to augment what is already being done in homicide research and to help organize what is commonly available. As such, our research agenda includes novel areas of study as well as some expected topics. We vary long-term data collection and study with shorter-term investigations.
- LGBT Homicide, Patterns & Prevalence
- Prevention of Homicide
- Convenience Store Killings
- Body Disposal Patterns & Detection
- Posed Bodies Recognition in Sexual Homicides
- Mapping the Life-course of a Homicide Cluster
- Homicide Among the Homeless
- Male Prostitution Homicide
- Missing Victim Homicides
- Intimate-Partner Homicides
- Transgender and Transsexual Homicides
- Knife Weapon Homicide
- Solvability of Homosexual Homicides
- Rhythmic Cycles of Homicide
