Death Investigation

NIJ supports the community of death investigation professionals by providing training, disseminating best practices for death investigation, and funding research and development.

NIJ has funded a number of projects in forensic pathology, including estimating the post-mortem interval, using molecular autopsies to investigate unexplained deaths, studying the impact of the post-mortem interval and body temperature on magnetic resonance imaging, and interpreting patterned injuries in death investigation.
