Researchers from & # 39; Human Body Farm & # 39; find that corpses are MOVE during their dissolution – and the discovery can change the way death scenes are investigated
- Researchers have discovered that bodies move considerably during the decomposition
- Scientists spent 17 months observing cadavers in the elements near Sydney
- They said the revelation will change the way researchers look at scenes of death
Researchers at a & # 39; human body farm & # 39; have discovered that dead bodies & # 39; significantly & # 39; move during the decomposition process.
The Australian Taphonomic Experimental Research (NA) facility made the discovery, which is likely to change the way the death scene is investigated.
Prior to the revelation, researchers believed how a body was found, how it died, unless the post-mortem was moved.

Researcher Alyson Wilson used time-lapse cameras to study a carcass that was missing in the elements outside of Sydney for 17 months.
The time-lapse camera filmed the bodies at 30-minute intervals and gave researchers a clear indication of the dissolution process.
& # 39; What we found was that the arms moved considerably, so that the arms that started next to the body ended at the side of the body, & # 39; Wilson said ABC news.
She said it would not only help law enforcement with their death investigation, but also with disaster investigation, and also gave a victim the chance to & # 39; tell their last story & # 39 ;.
NA Maiken Ueland Deputy Director said the implications of the discovery would be far-reaching.

& # 39; Knowing that exercise can be the result of the dissolution process instead of scavengers or original placement, is important when it comes to determining what happened, especially if this movement is much greater than previously assumed, & # 39; she said.
Another important discovery from Mrs. Wilson's research was that the revelation bodies that remained in the elements near or in Sydney would mummify under the right conditions and at any time of the year.
The body would also continue to mummify for at least three years.
& # 39; It opens all year for mummification in the right conditions, and it prevents us from going the wrong way (in investigations), & # 39; said Wilson.
