ANTIDEPRESSANT-RELATED HOMICIDES

England & Wales 2003-16

 

The format of the list is as follows:

Name (with Hyperlink); Occupation; Age; Location; Antidepressant(s) Involved; Cause of Death.

Where I have established the brand name of antidepressants involved, I have named it. Otherwise, I have used the abbreviation ADs, or MfD where the report refers to “medication for depression” or similar.

I hope that I have not intruded on anybody’s private grief by collating this information. However, if you are related to anybody involved in an antidepressant-related homicide, and do not wish the name connected to your relative to be included, please send an email to brian@antidepaware.co.uk with the details, and the name and link will be removed. 

Much of the information on this page has been acquired from documents such as Domestic Homicide Reviews and Serious Case Reviews, many of which can be found at the Hundred Families website.

The year recorded below is the year of the trial or inquest
