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...
