Strangulation victims: A forensic approach
Strangulation attempts are much more common than many people realize. More than two thirds (68 percent) of women at high risk for intimate partner violence will experience near-fatal strangulation at the hands of a partner. The risk for homicide skyrockets after a nonfatal strangulation, which is associated with more than a seven-fold odds of a future completed homicide. In fact, 70 percent of strangled women believed they were going to die during the attack.
