CASE NO: 200901 (P. Iggy) CONTACT: William Blankenship, Caitlin Jackson, Britt Williamson, Sarah Wong North Carolina State University Entomology, Gardner Hall Raleigh, NC 27601 EVIDENCE SUBMITTED: 1. 50 Photographs 2. No Videos 3. Autopsy report - ENTPD, Raleigh, North Carolina. 4. Vials of preserved insects 5. Maggot motels (reared specimens) 6. Weather data, Raleigh: 18 March – 2 April 7. Deceased -Reported missing, 29 March -Corpse Discovered: 1900 hrs, 2 April -Autopsy performed: 9 April CONCLUSION: The subject most likely passed away around two weeks before the discovery of the body.* With the colder temperatures, C. macellaria develops much slower. If the estimated postmortem interval (PMI) is 14 days, this places the time of death to early morning of March 20th through the afternoon of the 20th. This takes into account that the body was discovered in the evening and the species of flies found on the body deposit eggs early in the day. The autopsy report showed that the subject died of natural causes, possibly a heart attack during his morning jog. This strengthens the estimation that the body was colonized mid- morning to mid-day. SCENARIO: The male victim, a 34 year old, was found in a field lying on his side. The victim originated from Durham, North Carolina and was reported missing by his wife on March 29th, 2009. Victim was not wearing any clothes and had no objects obstructing the body, e.g. bag, torn clothing, excessive vegetation.
