PolitiFact - 10/07/2014
The Justice Department offers a breakdown of homicides with female victims, more than one-third of which involve “intimate partners,” which could be current or former (or male or female).
From 2002 to 2012, the number of women killed by intimate partners was 15,462, according to data from James A. Fox, a Northeastern University criminology professor who adjusted federal data for unsolved homicide cases believed to be linked to intimate partners.
