Re: “The hidden tragedy of offender deaths”, the editorial by Stuart Ross in the 1 November issue of the Journal (Med J Aust 2004; 181: 469-470). The reference numbering in the text is incorrect because of a computer error. In the first 3 paragraphs, references 12, 13, 14 and 15 should be references 1, 2, 3 and 4, respectively. All other references are correct, except for reference 13 in the last paragraph of the text, which, again, should be reference 2.
