Description

Victim-Offender Relationships

Around seven o’clock on the morning
of December 4, 2004, seven year-old Dalton Corbin discovered his mother’s body.
Splayed across her bed with a gunshot wound to her skull, Jennifer Corbin had
died five hours earlier. Initial reports indicated the possibility of suicide,
but the discovery of an online relationship begun by Jennifer caught
detectives’ attention. A deeper investigation led them to Jennifer’s husband,
Barton Corbin (Van Sant, 2007).

Victim-offender relationships often
play a significant role in the commission of violent crimes. In 64.8% of U.S.
homicide cases between 1976 and 2005, the victim was killed by a familiar
person (Rennison, 2002). Among rape victims, 87.1% of women had preexisting
relationships with their attackers (Tjaden & Thoennes, 1998). The smallest
percentage of murder and rape victims met their fate in the hands of a
stranger.

For this Discussion, select a
high-profile murder case that occurred within the past ten years. Examine the
relationship between the victim and offender and consider how that relationship
may have influenced the murder.
