Targeted Podcast True Crime Domestic Violence

Dec 25, 2018

I wanted to pop back in during our mid-season break to wish you a happy holiday season.  Today I’m going to tell you a brief case about a case that escalated on Christmas Day a few years ago.  

There’s an often said truism that domestic violence rates spike during the holidays.  This makes a sort of sense, doesn’t it?  After all, we’re already anxious and overworked, so we reason that it would be logical for this to be time where an abuser has less self control and may blow up more often.  Does the research back this up?  Let’s investigate.
