About half of the murders that have taken place in Vermont over the past 20 years have been related to domestic violence.
We're talking about that persistent, deadly link between domestic violence and homicide, and what steps can be taken by the state going forward to stop both.
Our guests for today's program include:
- Mark Davis — a staff writer for Seven Days who wrote the recent cover piece 'Til Death Do Us Part: Maidstone's Grisly Murder-Suicide Was Domestic Violence
- Auburn Watersong — associate director of public policy for Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence
- Captain JP Sinclair — chief criminal investigator at the Vermont State Police's Bureau of Criminal Investigations and a member of the state's domestic violence fatality review commission
If you need help: The Domestic Violence Hotline is 1-800-228-7395 and the state has resources available here.
