About this item

This guide explains how to scientifically calculate the estimated time since death postmortem in forensic casework. It contains 13 chapters that describe errors in estimating the time since death; early work in the field; supravitality in tissues; rigor mortis; postmortem lividity; postmortem body cooling and temperature-based methods; autolysis, putrefactive changes, and postmortem chemistry; gastric contents; and practical casework. This edition incorporates the later postmortem period, including putrefactive changes, entomology, and postmortem resonance spectroscopy, as well as the radiocarbon test, new chapters on cross-sectional imaging and the postmortem interval and immunohistochemical methods, discussion of the estimation of duration of immersion based on decomposition in relation to the actual water temperature, and a new mathematical approach to narrow down the postmortem interval derived from the compound method. All chapters have been revised. Contributors are forensic medicine specialists from Europe. Online access an ebook is included. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
