Abstract:
The focus of this thesis is substance-related homicide in England and Wales. The research examines the extent and nature of homicides involving intoxication (alcohol and/or drugs) as well as those involving a broader drug link (motivated by the economic demands of a costly drug habit or drug market activity). Homicide is an under-researched area of criminology in the UK and this research contributes to a developing body of knowledge. Recent research has drawn attention to the association between intoxication and homicide; highlighting that significant proportions of offenders and victims have histories of substance misuse and/or are intoxicated at the time of the event. However, no research in the UK has specifically addressed the nature of such homicides or explored the concept of drug market-related homicide.
