An autopsy is a surgical process involving the dissection of a corpse for the identification of the cause, mode, and method of death. Sometimes it is also done for research and educational purposes. There are several instances when you have unclaimed bodies. And this creates a problem for the police force during the investigation to identify them due to the non-availability of any information. Police then look for alternate marks on the body like tattoos, religious symbols, spouse names, or birthmarks and try to match them from a list of missing persons’ databases. If nothing is found, they also release advertisements both offline and online in the hope that someone identifies them. Also an autopsy for any purpose cannot be performed without authorization. In this expert talk on "Autopsy on Unclaimed Bodies: Practical Issues", our expert will highlight unclaimed body autopsy challenges, unclaimed body examination, autopsy techniques, and forensic autopsy solutions.
