Homicide-Suicide (H-S) is a form of dual death where the murder is closely followed by the suicide of the perpetrator. H-S is extremely rare and has not previously been described within the chronic pain patient population. Such a case is presented. Psychiatric examination data from the victims of H-S revealed a number of complex, psyciatric, social, vocational, and litigation problems. Demographically the case displays some characteristics associated with suicide pacts.
