Counting Murder and Manslaughter In Australia – 2019

January 1, 2019 – January 6, 2019

The RED HEART Campaign is counting every murder and manslaughter in Australia in 2018 to show the true extent of violence on society. This data will also give us a clear indication of how many people are being killed in a domestic or family violence setting, while exposing the real level of gendered violence on our community.

The data includes all deaths by alleged murder and manslaughter. Clearly, every person charged is innocent unless convicted of a crime. We will supply links to media articles or police media releases on each death for transparency reasons.

When quoting this data it is important to remember that not all deaths where domestic violence is suspected are a result of intimate or ex partner violence.  Domestic violence deaths may include other family members – such as siblings, parents, or children – being suspected for the deaths.

If you believe we have missed a murder or manslaughter, please message The RED HEART Campaign on Facebook.

If using this data, please acknowledge The RED HEART Campaign. If you would like more information about this data please PM The RED HEART Campaign or email admin@TheREDHEARTCampaign.org
