Entomology

Forensic Entomology can provide valuable evidence to assist in establishing post-mortem interval (and hence time of death) as well as other matters such as whether or not a body was moved after death.

Establishing the post-mortem interval can be particularly useful in helping to corroborate or refute witness accounts regarding the last sightings of a deceased person.  Collection and preservation of the appropriate evidence is vital for an accurate assessment to be made, as is the accurate recording of environmental conditions and we would always recommend that contact is made with ArroGen Forensics at the earliest opportunity to obtain the appropriate advice and to establish whether a scene visit is required.
