Welcome back to the TCFC podcast. I’m your guest host, Coleen, from Misconduct. Teen dating violence is a growing epidemic. A study published in the Journal of the Academic Medical Association in 2017 revealed that of the 2000 adolescent homicides between 2003 and 2016, 150 of these were committed by former boyfriends or girlfriends. 90% of these were female, with an average age of 17. In almost 80 percent of the cases, the male perpetrator was 18 years old or older (1). Today, we discuss an instance of break-up violence from 1988, before any real understanding of stalking behaviors or other red flags. Okay…onto the show.
