Offender-Victim Relationships in Far-Right Homicides: The Influence of Location in Ideologically and Non-Ideologically Motivated Homicides

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The proposed research project will evaluate how suspect and location characteristics predict the relationship between the offender and victim in homicides conducted by far-rightists. Both routine activities theory and ecological theory suggest that characteristics of the neighborhood influence one’s exposure to different groups of people. These theories suggest structural factors in the neighborhood may influence violent incidents, including who are the victims of a crime. This study will select a sample of single-offender homicides (both ideological and non-ideological for comparison) from the United States Extremist Crime Database (ECDB). The study will include suspect characteristics, as well as the descriptives of the town where the incident took place and the town(s) where the suspect and victim lived in a multivariate regression to model how these factors influence the relationship between the offender and victim (e.g. family/intimate-partners, friends, acquaintance/just met, strangers). Three hypotheses will be evaluated. First, victims of non-ideologically motivated homicides will be family or friends more often than they will be strangers/acquaintances. Second, victims in locations where the offender does not live are more likely to be strangers than friends/family. Lastly, the heterogeneity of a town will moderate the influence of ideology on the offender-victim relationship in a homicide.
