Досліджено найбільш поширені класифікації слідчих ситуацій, запропоновані вченими-криміналістами, критерієм розподілів яких є різноманітні підстави. Також запропоновано класифікацію типових слідчих ситуацій, які виникають під час розслідування вбивств. Визначено, що основою класифікації слідчих ситуацій є класифікаційні основи, які утворюються залежно від категорії кримінальної справи, криміналістичної характеристики виду злочину, що повинно бути враховано при розслідуванні злочину та кожній стадії досудового провадження. Зроблено висновок, що всі слідчі ситуації під час розслідування вбивств (у загальному значенні) можна розділити на дві групи: 1) слідчі ситуації «без трупа»; 2) слідчі ситуації «з трупом», які у свою чергу доцільно поділити на слідчі ситуації «з підозрюваним» і «без такого».

Ключові слова: класифікація слідчих ситуацій, слідчі ситуації «з трупом», слідчі ситуації «без трупа», слідчі ситуації «з підозрюваним», слідчі ситуації «без підозрюваного».
