Estimating the time since death is a very important aspect in forensic sciences which is pursued by a variety of methods. The most precise method to determine the postmortem interval (PMI) is the temperature method which is based on the decrease of the body core temperature from 37 °C. However, this method is only useful in the early postmortem phase (~0–36 h). The aim of the present work is to develop an accurate method for PMI determination beyond this present limit. For this purpose, we used… CONTINUE READING
