Death and life go hand in hand and everyday people come in contact with the possibility of dying. This fact is complicated by types of death such as homicide or murder. This short essay will examine different types of criminal homicide and the different ways to investigate them. There are basically four types of criminal homicide: murder, capital murder, manslaughter, or criminally negligent homicide (State of Texas). Criminal homicide is defined by a person intentionally, knowingly, recklessly, or behaving in a criminally negligent manner that causes another person to die (State of Texas). Murder is depicted as the death of another person caused by "sudden passion", intentionally caused or occurred as a byproduct of an individual committing an act that was dangerous to another individual (State of Texas). Capital murder is associated with the murder of a public service individual such as a fireman or policeman, a murder committed during crimes like kidnapping and robbery, murder committed for remuneration purposes and murders committed while incarcerated or during the time frame of attempted escape from incarceration (State of Texas).

Manslaughter is defined when a death is caused due to a person being reckless it is not necessarily intentional (State of Texas). Criminally negligent homicide is linked with a person causing the death of another by an act of criminal negligence (State of Texas). In order to increase citizen safety and decrease the number of homicides there must be countermeasures in place. These countermeasures are the investigative techniques used to combat homicides. At present the three strongest techniques include: risk assessment, examination of declining homicide rates, and utilizing the Office of Victims of Crime (OVC). The first two techniques are linked with the National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS). Its purpose is to release risk factor information that could lead law enforcement to discover possible homicides (Portland State University). It also provides an examination of trends associated with the decrease in crime. This is important because factors in the decrease of one type of homicide may be used to decrease other types of homicide. The OVC is a means to more accurately accumulate homicide statistic data which in the future assists law enforcement in combating and decreasing homicide (Portland State University).

Homicide is a persistent problem that grows from either the intentional or unintentional dangerous actions that one person performs towards another. There is little chance that this age old ritual will completely stop; however, there are techniques in place like risk assessment to slow it down. The more pertinent data received in this area the better equipped law enforcement will be.
