Guamuchil, sinaloa.- A cool room, gloves on hands and a knife on dead skin. “It’s a scientific method”, a forensic doctor repeats to himself, before opening a corpse, and beginning to cut. When a person dies violently, forensic doctors are called in to determine the cause of death., Time or day doesn’t matter They must attend the call, and after a series of diagnostic procedures, state a person’s cause of death.,

Necrosis is a scientific method used to determine the cause, and involves opening the body From top to bottom, front to back and right to left. The cranial region, the rib cage and the abdomen are the main areas that are examined to find the cause of death.

,Autopsies are performed for all those who died violently.“, explained expert witness and forensic doctor Pablo Sánchez Rivera. Whether a shotgun, a knife, running, drowning, and all painful ways to end a person’s life, they are the object of a forensic doctor’s study.

“To perform necropsy, knowledge of human anatomy is required prior to practice and experience,” Sanchez Rivera said. With diligence and respect, the medical examiner receives the body in the autopsy room. With the help of various instruments it enters the cranial cavity. It is opened from right to left with a scalpel and the skin is separated from the bone.,

Then, with an electric saw, a portion of the cranial vault is removed so that the brain can be left open for later analysis. Upon reaching the chest, the process continues and opens from the chin to the pubic symphysis.

As it moves down, the fat is drained and prepared to enter the internal parts. After the sternum is removed to expose the chest and heart for review, the chest is retracted to the level of cartilage with a scalpel.

The process continues along the abdomen, where the liver, stomach, large intestine, small intestine, spleen, and other organs are examined for observation. After the corpse’s entrails are analyzed, the organs are returned to their places and the body is sealed.

When the work of the forensic doctor is over, the work of the funeral home begins, the so-called “emblemers”.Those in charge of preparing the carcass with a chemical called formalin, which allows it to contain the odor that the chilled meat gives off for its subsequent awakening.

Within a few hours after the autopsy, the corpse begins to decompose tissue and dermal detachment, as well as swelling and emitting a pungent odor. “If the chemical is not applied, it decomposes immediately, and even more so with the climate of Sinalon, so hot,” explained Dr. Pablo Sánchez Rivera.

In case of murder of women, protocol should be followed to the letter, it is a long process which should be done slowly and calmly, Although the fatal wound is obvious, they are obliged to review everything.

Factors to Consider While Negotiating

  • Device, Scalpels, tweezers, electric saws and separators are some of the diagnostic tools used during an autopsy, which must be in perfect condition and hygiene.
  • Duration, With 21 years of experience working in the field, expert witness Pablo Sánchez Rivera takes a maximum of four hours and a minimum of two hours to conduct an autopsy.
  • tanato chronos, Forensic doctors use a method called “tannato chrono diagnosis”, a diagnostic procedure that allows the diagnosis of a probable date of death through studies and parameters.
  • professional ethics, Practitioners should be strictly governed by forensic science, without deviating from that method, based on protocol and with an eminent scientific conduct in adherence to truth.

Despite the fact that many do not agree that this type of procedure should be performed, forensic doctor Pablo Sanchez Rivera said that it is helping the person more than affecting the body. “This is what the families want to know, the truth of the unknown, why their relative died, and that’s what we do, help them,” he said. In this regard, he assured that he has not met people who do not agree with this practice. “Should be yes, but we only do it to help,” he said.
