North West England

202 known cases 1993 – 2018

64 investigation reports

In addition to the individual homicide inquiry reports available here, in September 2009 NHS North West published a study of all local mental health homicides between 2002 and July 2006 which had not been investigated properly.

They found 42 mental health homicides occurred in the area during that time.

By contrast only 22 cases have been found in press reports for the same period (involving 27 victims).

Of the 42 cases identified by the NHS North West report, 21 have still not been properly investigated.
