I’m working on a criminal justice discussion question and need support to help me learn.
One common forensic finding with a high power electrocution is an entry and exit wound. Assume you are death scene investigator and have been called to the scene of what appears to be an electrocution. Upon examining the body, you notice a small burn to the decedentâ€™s scalp and two larger burns to the decedentâ€™s hands (one burn per hand).
What conclusion can you draw from your investigation? One entry wound and one exit wound? One entry wound and two exit wounds? Two entry wounds and one exit wound? How do you write up your death investigation report based on these findings?
