Languages of publication
"Dyadic death" called an expanded and post-aggresive suicide is the suicide made after the murder. Its essence boils down to the fact that the suicide is closely related to motivation and causation of the pre-made murder or assassination. It should be noted that the offender before the event decides to broaden the circle of people for whom death seems to him/her a necessity. The closest relations usually are selected in terms of emotional, i.e. family members or unrelated people with whom the offender linkes a bond. There are many reasons for this phenomenon, but the most common ones are severe mental disturbance, inability to rectify the requirements of life or life disappointment. In this article, the issue of "Dyadic death" was discussed in a comprehensive manner, showing all its aspects, both theoretical and practical. There were presented: characteristic elements of extended suicide, the most common motives of committing, the qualification of legal and criminal action, the examples of "Dyadic death" that took place in Poland and the number of expanded suicides committed in this country.
