Notes:  Outlines the methodology and findings of a research project that examined intimate partner femicide statistics across eleven U.S. cities in order to establish key risk factors. A range of triggers and/or indicators is identified, including previous violence, threats, use of weapons, stalking behaviour, increased frequency/severity of violence, pregnancy, use of alcohol/drugs and jealousy. Suggests that medical and legal professionals need to become more aware of various risk factors and develop service responses accordingly.
