Forensic Alphabet #6

U is for ULTRA-VIOLET

Samples are examined under a Ultra-Violet light,
To help traces of body fluids come into sight.


V is for VITAL REACTION

An autopsy examines wounds for the presence of leucocytes,
To check if the victim was alive during the blows, cuts or bites.


W is for WATER


Water found in the lungs indicates death caused by drowning,
Cream pie on the face indicates death caused by clowning.





X is for X-RAY

An X-ray shows us the bones therefore the very astute,
Will deduce that this was a human dressed in a dog suit.



Next week will be the final installment covering letters Y and Z. I can't promise not to resort to zebras...

Forensic Alphabet #1 A-D
Forensic Alphabet #2 E-H
Forensic Alphabet #3 I-L

Death by clowning is soooo cute!

That's clowns for you - cute but deadly. It's all laughs and smiles until they sneakily unicycle up behind you and squirt you with a water-loaded flower or cream-pie you to death.
