Abstract: There are two very common sayings about corpse (dead body). The first common saying is that “the corpse is a silent witness who never lies” and the other common saying is that “the dead body is extremely eloquent and honestly informative, if one exercises patience in listening to it.” Both these sayings were proved in one of our cases. In the present case, decomposed body of an unidentified female individual aged about 25 - 26 years was recovered from the bank of western Yamuna canal in Haryana. The police made the efforts for establishing the identity of the deceased but could not succeed. The body was forwarded to the district hospital for autopsy along with the inquest report. However, the body being in advanced stage of decomposition so it was referred from the district hospital to the department of Forensic Medicine, PGIMS, Rohtak (Haryana) for the examination and the expert opinion regarding the cause of death. The findings observed on examination of the body helped to deduce the cause, time and manner of death whereas certain important objective features of identification were also observed and ultimately proper identity of the deceased could be established beyond the reasonable doubt by DNA profile of the samples preserved at autopsy. The autopsy findings, DNA profile and the results of examination of other materials (exhibits) taken from the body not only revealed the truth from the silent witness—the corpse, but also provided objective and scientific evidence to establish the corpus delicti in this case.

Abstract: INTRODUCTION Skull-face photograph superposition is one of the methods of identification. Digitally recorded and stored within the computer, the images of the skull and face could be superimposed on the monitor. The method requires cooperation among the anthropologist, odontologist, forensic pathologist and the computer technician so as to avoid objective and subjective errors in the identification. CASE OUTLINES We present two cases of positive identification by superimposition. In the first case, it was a 65 year-old male with several brain operations, thus surgical skull bonetrepanations could be seen as the irregularities on the forehead, and were used as the antropological identificational figure. In the second case, it was an 83 year-old female, whose positive identification was made according a photograph taken at least 26 years before death. CONCLUSION Face identification by computerized superposition method is useful in all cases where both the skull and the photograph of the missing person are present, and where other methods of identification have failed due to multiple reasons.

Abstract: The aim of this study was correlation determination between fat putrefaction indices and antioxidative enzymes in chicken, cattle and camel meat during refrigerated storage. Longissimus dorsi muscle of three Iranian dromedary one humped camel and three Holstein cattle and breast muscle of three broiler breeder chicken were obtained from the carcasses 3 days postmortem. The samples were ground and stored at 4 °C for 0, 2, or 4 days. Peroxide, TBA, acid and iodine values, catalase and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) activities of the muscles were performed in each storage time. Catalase and GSH-Px activities were much higher in camel than in chicken and cattle and higher in cattle than in chicken. TBA value was lower in chicken than in camel. Camel had higher acid value than cattle. Chicken showed the highest and camel had the lowest iodine values. Catalase and GSH-Px activities and iodine values were quite stable during refrigerated storage. Acid values increased significantly over storage days in cattle. During the 4-day storage period, TBA and peroxide values increased. GSH-Px activity showed negative correlation with acid and TBA values in chicken and cattle. Acid value (for chicken and cattle) and peroxide value (for 3 animal species) showed positive correlation with TBA content. Iodine value had positive correlation with catalase activity in cattle and negative correlation with peroxide and TBA values in camel. In conclusion, our results indicate that peroxide and TBA values can be used as lipid quality indices in chicken, cattle and camel meat during 4 day storage in refrigerator. [Vet.

Abstract: Putrefaction and decay of preserved cadaver and body parts is one of the major issues that the faculties of medicines in various third world countries are facing. In this study we focus on the meaning of body preservation, causes of putrefaction and we highlight our personal experiences at the Faculty of Medicine in Prince Sattam bin Abdulaziz University in KSA, in preserving the body cadavers. We studied different physical and chemical methods of preservation of cadavers and body parts at the faculty and their efficiency in preventing bacteria and fungi that cause putrefaction and decay.

Abstract: pos-embrionary development of lucilia cuprina reared on horse meat, previously exposed at 27°c for different periods (two, 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours) was studied. sixty grams of diet and 2 g diet per 1 larva ratio were used. there were four replication in each treatment. the results of this experiment indicated that the development time of the larval and pupal stages were shorttened when l. cuprina was reared on this substrate previously exposed to 2 and 24 hours. however, the body weigth was lower than that observed. the emergence of adults were higher than 50% in each treatment

Abstract: O objetivo deste estudo foi comparar a influência de diferentes fases verificar o desenvolvimento embrionário de Lucilia cuprina em dieta a base de carne eqüina (duas, 24, 48, 72 e 96 horas) sobre o desenvolvimento embrionário. Utilizaram-se 60 gramas de dieta por repeti o/tratamento, considerando-se a rela o de 1 larva/2g de substrato. Foram utilizadas quatro repeti es por tratamento. Os resultados obtidos indicaram que a dura o da fase larval e pupal oriunda deste substrato foi, em média, menor nos tratamentos relativo a 2 e 24 horas, respectivamente, refletindo-se, em uma redu o da massa corporal, ocorrendo o inverso nos tratamento de 72 e 96 horas. A taxa de emergência dos adultos foi superior a 50% em todos os tratamentos Pos-embrionary development of Lucilia cuprina reared on horse meat, previously exposed at 27°C for different periods (two, 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours) was studied.

Abstract: During the 2008 archaeological investigations of the necropolis at Plinthine, two shallow graves containing concentrations of Cecilioides acicula (O. F. Müller, 1774) were excavated. Their presence could give us indications about the body’s treatment before burial and the offerings.
