How Do You Determine How Many Parricides Occur Each Year?
The FBI collects data on all murders and reports them annually in the Supplemental Homicide report (SHR). States are not required to report. Some states do not report at all. Therefore, we have added any parricides reported in the media (after confirming it of course) that did not appear in the SHR. Kids were defined as 24 years old and younger.
