Episode 4 – Parricide: When Children Kill Parents

Following on from our last podcast of Filicide, where we talked about parents who kill their children, this podcast will turn around that notion of family homicide and talk about Parricide.

Parricide is the act in which children kill one or both parents and/or siblings or other family members.

We will delve into the motivation of such murders and will again talk about cases in which parents are killed by their own child.

Are these killers psychopaths or is there other reasons for these horrific crimes?
