In respect to homosexuality and homocides, Vernon J. Geberth, M.S., M.P.S. who is a former commander of Bronx homicide for the New York City Police Department stated in 1995 regarding homosexuality and homicides that homosexual homicides are relatively common and these homicides may involve male victims killed by other males or may involve female victims who are in some type of lesbian relationship and they are murdered by another female.[1] In 2005, Dr. Harnam Singh, Dr. Luv Sharma, and Dr. Dhattarwal reported in the Journal of Indian Academy of Forensic Medicine in regards to homosexuality and homocides that homosexual homicides are quite common and that these homicides may involve both sexes either as victims or as assailants.[2]

Homosexual Homicides and Brutality

According to the New York Times Dr. William Eckert was a world renowned authority in the field of pathology and he worked on major murder cases including the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy. [3] Dr. Eckert founded the American Journal of Forensic Medicine and Pathology.[4]

Dr. Eckert wrote regarding homosexual homocides the following:

Equally high is the number of homicides, many probably related to transient attachments, which often lead to suspicion, jealousy, and murder. When murder does occur it is exceptionally brutal with an overkill appearance... Overkill, as it is seen in homosexual and lesbian murders, is certainly a form of sadistic crime. In these instances multiple stabbing and other brutal injuries...are common findings...[5]

Bernard Knight CBE, MD, BCh, MRCP, FRCPath, FHKCPath, DMJ (Path) is an Emeritus Professor of Forensic Pathology at the University of Wales College of Medicine in Britain. Dr. Pekka Saukko is Professor and Head of the Department of Forensic Medicine at the University of Turku in Finland. Dr. Saukko is also the editor of Forensic Science International.[6] Doctors Knight and Saukko coauthored a pathology textbook in 2004 which stated the following:

As with heterosexual offenses, the cause of death in fatal cases is almost always some form of general trauma, such as strangulation or head injuries. Homosexual activity, however, may be a parallel event; it is a fact that some of the most violent homicides seen by pathologists are among male homosexuals.[7]

The previously cited article in the Journal of Indian Academy of Forensic Medicine states regarding homosexual homocides the following: "These "Lovers' quarrels" between male homosexuals manifest an increased level of violence due to the fact that the parties involved in the emotional conflict are both sexual aggressors."[8]

The Encyclopedia of Serial Killers by Michael Newton reports the following regarding the issue of homosexuality and homocides:

Homosexual slayers clearly have no monopoly on violence, but it is true that their crimes often display extremes of "overkill" and mutilation... On balance, it seems fair to say that while homosexuals sometimes fall prey to "gay bashing" violence by bigoted "straights," they are far more likely to be murdered by another homosexual than in a random hate crime.[9]
The previously cited pathology textbook by Knight and Saukko stated the following: "In addition, quite a number of fatal altercations arise because a heterosexual man becomes violent when importuned by a homosexual."[10]
