Investigation of Concealed Homicide and Establishment of Positive Identification: A Critical Study | Chapter 8 | Innovations in Medicine and Medical Research Vol. 2

To conceal a crime to be detected by the investigating agencies like police and doctor is the prime moto for the criminals. These concealed homicides are very difficult to investigate by the investigating officers starting from confirmation of alleged accused to the collection of positive evidences in favour of the case to prove beyond doubt in the court of law. More difficulties arise when they try to destroy the evidences by concealing dead body of offence, by throwing the body in the unapproachable area or making difficult to identify by relatives or investigation officers by burning or mutilating the deceased by the accused. A case is discussed here, having similar observations that the accused tried to concealed the crime by burning the dead body on the outskirt of the city. Various aspects in this case like cause of death, establishment of positive identification etc. are discussed in this paper.
