Abstract [en]

Introduction: There has been a decrease in the number of child homicides in Sweden and internationally (Sturup & Granath, in press). Even so, the death of a child is one of the most tragic events and due to the vulnerability of children, these events are of special interest for the criminal justice system. If conjunction with the autopsy findings, a carefully examined crime scene is necessary for the reconstruction of the event (Randall, 2014). This study was set up to examine the crime scene reports in child homicides.

Method and material: Data from an ongoing population based studies on child homicides 1990-2012 has been collected but since all police files in solved cases before 1998 were discarded, only cases from 1998 through 2012 were examined in this sub-study of crime scene investigations.

Procedure: All crime scene reports were extracted from the police files and autopsy reports from the National Board of Forensic Medicine were collected (n=73). A crime scene investigator (AJ) collected data according to a systematic protocol.

Results: The study is ongoing and detailed results will be presented at the conference. Preliminary analyses reveal that 23% of the children were killed by sharp force violence, 21% by asphyxiation, 12% by gunshot wound, 8% by blunt trauma, 7% by drowning, and 19% by other methods (arson, poisoning, vehicle, etc).
