[An Infants Corpse in a Plastic Bag – a Case of Child Homicide?]
Kriminalistik 8-9/2007, 551-553
Remains of a child’s corpse in a plastic bag were found during works on an urn cemetery in Bremen. The connection between the corpse and the urn cemetery was not certain, therefore the police assumed an illegal disposal of the child. Since the corpse was heavily putrefied an important question was the time until death, which resulted in a surprising conclusion. Comparative cases show that caution is necessary when assessing corpse exposure times.
