NH homicides spiked in 2019
Union Leader December 29,2019
Amanda Grady Sexton, director of public affairs at the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, said the increase was troubling.
“We should all be alarmed by the number of individuals who killed people in New Hampshire in 2019,” she said.
While most domestic violence homicides are committed by men, society still tends to focus on the victims’ actions, Sexton said.
“We ask why she didn’t leave the relationship and talk about how she attracted the wrong kind of men,” she said. “Rarely do we ask men why they are abusive in their homes, why they won’t stop using violence, or what’s preventing them from getting help.”
