Abstract

Aims of the study was to observe the pattern of injuries in asphyxial death on gross and radiological examination. Evidence of extravasations of blood around the fracture site was accepted as antemortem in presence of other injuries to neck like bruises and soft tissue haemorrhage. Therefore, gross & radiological examination of the hyoid bone is to decide the actual manner of death.
