Testosterone and Homicide (An African Perspective)

The enigma of the relationship between testosterone and violence remained of blurred boundaries, yet a challenging conundrum for forensic psychiatry and psychology. This article presents the outcome of a case controlled study comparing testosterone blood level from 50 inmates convicted for murder with 50 cross matched control. A positive association was found between inmates convicted for murder and high testosterone blood level. Moreover, the relationship is even stronger between high testosterone blood level and individuals with recurrent aggressive intensions and who experienced recurrent criminal thoughts that are completely opposite with individuals who are possessed with peaceful attitudes, with P value of 0.002, 0.0001 and 0.000 consecutively.
