This week My First Forensic Alphabet looks at the letters E-H.
E is for ENTOMOLOGY
A dead body may have bugs and larvae inside,
And their species and age help show where and when someone died.
F is for FINGERPRINTS
Each finger is patterned with loops, arches and whorls,
In a unique combination for all boys and girls.
G is for GAS
The inhalation of natural gas can make you quite sick,
It’s lucky for cow that this oven’s electric.
H is for HYPOSTASIS
In the hours after death hypostasis begins,
As the blood sinks downwards and discolours the skin.
