Children Killing Their Parents

When you see news on TV you often see that an adult killed or hurt someone, rarely that a kid killed anyone, let alone their parents.
Unfortunately in Australia these cases are becoming completely “normal”, because according to some statistics one parent is killed by their kid every month. And that sounds very frightening.

Sadly some reports have shown that parents were one of the most frequent groups of victims when it comes to family homicides. They are right after kids and partners.
According to research between 2002 and 2003 and 2011 and 2012 more than one hundred and thirty parents were killed by their children, and unfortunately in ten cases both parents were dead.

When it comes to other crimes, such as murder by a partner or kids who were killed by one parent or both, you can see that numbers are increasing every year, which is very tragic.
In most cases parents were killed while they were in their home and it was usually between six in the afternoon and midnight.

You could find cases where parents were killed somewhere else (such as mental care facility or someone else’s place) but it is pretty much rare.
Parents were often killed by their sons, and according to some statistics in more than seventy percent of cases those victims were stabbed to death.
What is really unusual when it comes to these cases is that sons usually kill their father, and on the other hand daughters kill their mothers.
