Decomposition


  • Eye dries out, thin film forms over it

  • Forms within 2-3 hours if open at death, 24 hours if closed

  • Potassium buildup in the eye

Changes in the eye


Answer the following in your notebooks:

As forensic scientists, how can we utilize the information from sites like the body farm in our investigation?

Stages of Decomposition


  • Within two days (Initial Decay)

    • Livor Mortis

    • Discoloration in face

    • Marbling of skin

    • Cell Death

Stages of Decomposition


  • Four days ( Putrefaction)

    • Blisters

    • Stomach swells with gas from bacteria

Stages of Decomposition


3. 6 – 10 Days (Black Putrefaction)

a. Gases build up

b. Chest and Stomach burst and collapse

c. Fluids leak from body

d. Eyes liquefy

e. Skin sloughs off

Stages of Decomposition


4. After 10 days (Butyric fermentation)

a. Corpse starts to dry out, flesh is gone

5. Eventually (Dry decay)

a. Corpse is dry, little decay

Stages of Decomposition


Answer the following in your notebooks:

  • How can we recognize the first stage of decomposition?

  • Describe the second stage (putrefaction) of decomposition?

  • How does the body change from the second stage (putrefaction) to the third stage (black putrefaction) of decomposition?

  • In your own words, describe what occurs during the fourth (Butyric fermentation) and fifth (Dry decay) stages of decomposition.
