Americans murdered at work in 2017

My continuing research project "The Killer in the Next Cubicle" evaluates employee-on-employee murders, the ultimate act of workplace violence.

My research demonstrates a total of 26 employees have been killed on the job by either current or former colleagues from January 1, 2017 to date.

As in years past, the vast majority of Americans who were killed by co-workers were shot dead.

Guns were used in 24 of the deaths.

One American was killed with a crowbar.

One American was beaten to death.
