We have found that an efficient method of providing evidence of lethal solvent abuse is to sample headspace above lung tissue and then perform cryogenically focused gas-liquid chromatography. In the case presented, the level of lethal agent in lung tissue was low, but the solvent was present in abundance in the pleural cavity. We conclude that the pleural(More)
