Death Investigation: An Introduction to Forensic Pathology for the Nonscientistprovides students and law enforcement professionals with an accurate, clear overview of forensic pathology. It presents death investigation at the scene and autopsy, providing readers with a broad understanding of forensic pathology and giving them a clear picture of what happens after the examination of the scene. Readers learn what first responders should (and should not) do at the scene, and get a forensic pathologist's perspective on the importance of preserving evidence. Death Investigation methodically explains what happens during autopsy to determine cause and manner of death - including particulars of blunt force trauma, sharp force injuries, asphyxia, and gunshot wounds - and how findings are presented in court.

Written for a criminal justice audience by a practicing forensic pathologist and educator, Death Investigation makes challenging forensics conceptsaccessible to nonscientists.

  • Presents the principles of death investigation in clear language and for the non-scientist
  • Covers all types of death investigations beyond just homicide
  • Explains the difference between coroner and medical examiner systems
  • Includes detailed photographs, key terms, learning objectives, and checklists
  • Online ancillary materials for students and instructors
