Summary
"The first volume in the new Causes of Death Atlas Series, this book takes an in-depth look at the determination of the time of death, postmortem changes, and identification. In Time of Death, Decomposition and Identification, you'll learn through the extensive use of photographs and discussion how estimating the time of death can rarely be accomplished with scientific accuracy. You'll learn about the numerous changes the body undergoes after death, and how positive and probable identifications are made." "For death investigators, law enforcement officers, attorneys, and anyone else involved in forensic death case, Time of Death, Decomposition and Identification is a "must have" resource."--BOOK JACKET
