London. So far, there have been many such murders around the world, the killer of which is not known. Vicious killers destroy all evidence without delay. From police to forensic experts… all investigators are dodged. But soon, these killers will get help to catch them. In fact, Australian scientists are doing a research. Under this, the corpses of 70 animals were kept in different suitcases and left to rot.
According to scientists, it follows from this research that in how many days the corpses deteriorate. It is said to help investigative agencies find the killers. This research is being conducted in the forests of Western Australia. This is the largest and first research of its kind in the world. Researchers measure how any change in temperature affects dead animals. Along with this, microbiological and chemical changes in the body and bones will also be observed.
Research will help
Speaking to Britain’s Mirror newspaper, Paola Magny, a lecturer in forensic science at Murdoch University, said that every year dozens of corpses are discovered which are decomposed inside homes. Dr Magny said: “It happens because criminals are trying to escape.” They remove the corpse from the crime scene and dump it somewhere else.
When will the results come?
The experiment started in early 2022 (in the southern hemisphere) and is expected to end this summer. His findings are set to be presented in February 2023 at the world’s largest forensic science conference. The team of scientists will also see the effect of the insects on the corpse. We will try to find out after how many days the worms appear on the body.
What is the effect on the corpse?
Forensic experts after the death have about three days. However, any insect found in the body can provide information for days, months, and even years after death. The study offers the first important data for the analysis of bodies found in such environments and will provide “new information to add to the toolkits of forensic entomologists.”
