Book Excerpt : Estimation of Time since Death in Australian Conditions collates data about decomposed bodies found in the eastern states of Australia from the years 2000 to 2010. The book takes into account that over 70% of decomposed bodies were found within 14 days. From standard autopsy reports, a quantitative method of assessing the degree of decomposition in four specific body organs and the total appearance of the body was collated into a total body score (tbs). The mathematical models on how to estimate time since death in the eastern states of Australia are covered in this valuable resource. Explores national statistical data concerning decomposed human bodies Presents Total Body Score (TBS) from standardized autopsy reports Includes research to prove the efficacy of a TBS from actual autopsies and actively decomposing bodies at a forensic research facility Presents a compilation of mathematical models to estimate the time since death in human bodies found decomposed indoors in the eastern states and the Northern Territory of Australia
