New forensics technique calculates exact time of death

Recommended Posts

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, July 2 (UPI) -- Determining the time of death isn't an exact science, and it becomes less and less exact as time passes. But a new method, developed by researchers at the University of Salzburg, allows forensic scientists to calculate the precise time of death, even after 10 days.

"Improvement of methods to determine time of death is crucial to modern forensic science," researchers wrote in an abstract describing their findings.

Previously, determining the exact time of death was an impossibility after 36 hours. But in examining the degradation of certain muscle-based proteins and enzymes in pigs, scientists have developed a new method for calculating the time of death. Testing shows the method to be precise for as long as 240 hours after death.
