Abstract:

This paper undertakes a comparative analysis of the circumstances and characteristics of crime homicides and other homicides in Australia, and examines the question of whether robbery homicide is a by product of robbery, or whether there is some quantitative difference in the two types of crime. The paper finds that there are certain incident, victim and offender characteristics that are more common to crime homicides than other homicides, and that there are striking differences between the circumstances and characteristics of robbery and robbery homicide in Australia ... The implications of these findings for prevention are discussed, with the author stressing that the study confirms the notion that there is not one type of homicide in Australia, and that the prevention of homicide must therefore be multifaceted and far reaching.
