Abstract

Thirty-three schizophrenic inpatients aged 45.3 +/- 13.5 years who had been found not guilty of homicide by reason of insanity were compared with 28 schizophrenic patients matched for age, sex and duration of disease who hadnot committed any crime. Statistical analysis revealed a high rate in the study group of individual factors associated with aggression, such as alcohol abuse, previous contact with the police, aggressive behavior and threats(P < 0.05). Significantly more of them were also immigrants (P < 0.05). There was no between-group difference in familiar factors. These findings support earlier studies indicating that schizophrenic patients with the:profile of alcoholism, aggressiveness and foreign country of origin are at high risk of homicidal behavior.
