Decomposition of Human Body - Humble Independent School District

Decomposition of Human Body Notes This ppt contains graphic images. I put pictures on slides that do not contain information so feel free to avert your eyes. Information is also

graphic and can be disturbing. 5 stages of decomposition Initial decay Putrefaction Black putrefaction

Butyric fermentation Dry decay Initial Decay 0-3 days after death Bacteria in digestive tract start eating

intestines, break through and begin feeding on surrounding organs Individual cells break down, releasing cell contents and enzymes into body

Putrefaction 4-10 days after death Body will be bloated from build-up of gases in body Gases released by bacteria living in intestines

Skin blisters Build-up of fluids from ruptured cells and intestines Skin begins slipping Putrefaction

Black Putrefaction 10-20 days after death Body begins to collapse and black surfaces are exposed Bloated body collapses and leaves a

flattened body Large volume of body fluids drain from body Black Putrefaction

Butyric Fermentation 20-50 days Remaining flesh on body is removed and body dries out Cheesy smell (caused by butyric acid) Surface of body in contact with ground may mold as body ferments

Butyric Fermentation Dry decay 50-365 days after death Body is dry and continues to decay very

slowly because of lack of moisture Mostly reduced to hair and bones Eventually the hair will disappear Dry decay

Picture of lividity Questions Answer on page 80 What factors do you think would speed up/slow down the rate of decomposition?

How does the state of decomposition assist scientists in determining time of death?
