Bayesian Networks and Sex-related Homicides
We present a statistical investigation on the domain of sex-related homicides. As general sociological and psychological theory on this specific type of crime is incomplete or even lacking, a data-driven approach is implemented. In detail, graphical modelling is applied to learn the dependency structure and several structure learning algorithms are combined to yield a skeleton corresponding to distinct Bayesian Networks. This graph is subsequently analysed and presents a distinction between an offender and a situation driven crime.
