Forensic Medicine pp 10-74 | Cite as

Summary

If a corpse is found or if someone dies under unusual circumstances, the cause of death is usually officially determined in all civilized countries. At the same time it is determined whether a criminal act can be connected with the death; but even if this is actually out of the question, but death is otherwise likely to trigger legal entanglements, e.g. B. In the case of a questionable suicide or accident, civil litigation or insurance disputes, the public prosecutor takes care of a later easier legal finding Death investigation initiate. Auxiliary organs of the public prosecutor's office are the local police authorities and the specially trained criminal police. When the local police work and when the work is transferred to the criminal police is regulated by the local organization. The responsible body of the criminal police maintains Homicide squad to be called. Officials of the so-called Identification service added. They are particularly responsible for the photographic and graphic representation of the conditions at the crime scene, as well as securing evidence. The homicide squad is usually motorized. It can therefore also be used in rural conditions without difficulty. In many cases, a so-called "murder car" is available to her. This is a small omnibus. It has an interrogation room, a small laboratory and a darkroom. The car contains all the instruments necessary to investigate the crime scene.
