I think its sad when they’ve been dead a while and no one missed them

 

 

The Body Removal

The Forensic pathologist 

has just been called to receive the body of a young girl who has recently died in a car accident. The girl had long brown hair, slender figure, she was either Anglo, cuban, or european. She reviewed her info. Jutted down all her personal information and she noticed that yes the recently diseased long hair brunette was also Spanish. Did that matted no,  and yes. Every little detail on a dead body matters. The details are what can help them clarify a death and differentiate a natural cause of death to a crime or an accident. Even a death caused by a car accident could not be automatically ruled as that. There were tests to make, and investigations. They need to rule out other unsuspected causes, such as intoxication, etc.

 

 

So today she had a big load of work to deal with. The hardest part for her was dealing with the emotional family and unclaimed bodies.

 

 

 

 

Me: Is it difficult?

The Forensic Pathologist:  Not really…..I think its sad

when they’ve been dead a while and no one missed them.
