Georgia Domestic Violence Fatality Review Project: 12th Annual Report

General Material
Published Date
January, 2015

The Georgia Commission on Family Violence works with the Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence to coordinate community reviews of domestic violence homicides across Georgia. The Fatality Review Annual Report is a statistical compilation of those reviews that includes recommendations for systematic change.

The 2015 report features the story of Trisha, a young woman who lost her mother to domestic violence homicide at the tender age of 14. She shares what it was like to grow up in at home witnessing the abuse of the mother, what it was like the day her mother died, and how this devastating loss has impacted her throughout her life. Additional content includes the impact of domestic violence exposure on children, the impact that domestic violence-related homicide has on surviving children and families and a special look at the problem of murder-suicide and familicide.
