We present a case in which the timing of injuries was requested to determine whether the death of a man found in a landfill was due to homicide or accident. The use of immunohistochemistry to detect P-selectin and Eselectin on endothelial cells of vessels in damaged skin samples, and compare them with intact skin samples, as well as the presence of lung adipose embolism provide information on the timing of the injury, thereby helping substantially to identify the dynamics of death.

Death due to crush injuries in a compactor truck: vitality assessment by immunohistochemistry

Abstract

We present a case in which the timing of injuries was requested to determine whether the death of a man found in a landfill was due to homicide or accident. The use of immunohistochemistry to detect P-selectin and Eselectin on endothelial cells of vessels in damaged skin samples, and compare them with intact skin samples, as well as the presence of lung adipose embolism provide information on the timing of the injury, thereby helping substantially to identify the dynamics of death.
