Aspects Influencing the Entomological Postmortem Interval in Crime Scene Reconstruction

Tom Adair

Abstract: The pathological postmortem interval (PMI), or time since death estimate, is widely understood among crime scene reconstructionists, pathologists, and prosecutors. Unlike the pathological PMI, the entomological PMI is not strictly an estimate of the time since death. This paper will discuss the entomological PMI and the environmental and cultural factors that may influence it.
