Maggots.

Just the sight of maggots sends chills up your spine, right? But maggots have a special place in a forensic investigation. In fact, maggots can provide valuable information such as the time of death of the decedent.

This mini course, part of our Exploring Evidence Series, provides an introduction to the wonderful world of maggots!

Yep, you read that right!

Once a person dies, his or her body starts to decompose, and depending upon the environmental conditions, the body will decompose at various rates and go through various different stages. By collecting insects feeding on the body, found on the body, and surrounding the body, investigators are able to determine estimated time of death.

Flies are great at discovering dead bodies, often time before beetles arrive. However, it is the blow fly that is usually associated with a decaying body. Blow flies usually arrive in the early stages of decomposition and can provide the most accurate estimated time of death.

After completing this course, you will be able to discuss and:

  • observe the effects of maggot activity on decedent to improve your learning process
  • explain why entomology evidence is important in an investigation and how it can help prove/disprove testimony
  • gain a basic understanding of forensic entomology and improve working knowledge

Course includes practicums, quiz, discussion activities, and case studies.

Please note this course includes pictures some may consider disturbing or graphic in nature.
