Özet

This case study presents a 12-year-old girl, who killed her 3-year-old sister by stabbing her twice. After the homicide-suicide act our case was alive and by that way we were able to gain information about the homicide-suicide dynamics. Here, we discuss the possible risk factors of homicide-suicide in children who are likely to experience abuse, neglect and other traumatic experiences such as witnessing violence.
