In an ideal investigation involving a deceased individual, the body would be found soon after death in a cool, dry, indoor environment. Unfortunately, this is seldom the case. When bodies are discovered in various states of decomposition, many good investigators assume that much of the information used to determine identity, time, and method of death are been lost. To the contrary, the processes a body naturally undergoes, both in life and death, provide a wealth of information to assist investigators in determining the identity of the individual, as well as the cause, manner, time, and circumstances of the death. In this course we explore and exploit these change through understanding.
