Psychiatry professor Sara West says no clear trends in filicide exist

Experts: Child homicides emotional, but not a trend in Boulder County

Longmont Times-Shield: In Boulder County, Colo., four children have been killed by their parents since 2009. Though shocking, there is no community profile to explain the problem, said Sara West, assistant professor of psychiatry at the School of Medicine. “I know it seems it happens frequently because they always make the headlines,” she said. “But I don’t think it happens enough that there are any clear trends.”
