Gholar, Laura April 3, 2013 Peck, J.H., & Heide, K.M.(2012). Juvenile involvement in fratricide and sororicide: An empirical analysis of 32 years of u.s. arrest data. Journal of Family Violence, 27, 749- 760. doi: 10.10007/s10896-012-9456-y This research focused on the juvenile fratricide offenders (juveniles who killed their brothers) and juvenile sororicide offenders (juveniles who killed their sisters). For the past 32 years, most studies have been limited in regards to juvenile fratricide and sororicide offenders. However prior to that, research has been limited to case studies and clinical studies focusing on adult siblicides or siblicides in general, not distinguishing between fratricides and sororicides committed by juvenile offenders.
