Sunday Mirror - Three people are killed by mentally ill every fortnight

 

OpenWorld News was specially commissioned by the Sunday Mirror to investigate the number of killings committed by mentally ill patients in the wake of the murder of Casey Kearney, aged 13. The investigation also looked at how cuts to NHS funding for psychiatric services have impacted on the care and supervision of mentally ill patients, potentially putting the public at risk. The article revealed 830 people were killed by mentally ill patients in the last decade – an average of three every fortnight.
