Abstract
A man was found dead in a room where two dogs and a cat were wandering freely. His legs were bare and his underpants presented a few small tears. The deceased exhibited a partial emasculation but with only a small amount of bleeding. No other significant injuries were found, particularly no defence lesions. Death was natural, caused by the rupture of a myocardial infarct. A small piece of connective tissue was found in the gastric contents of one of the dogs. This fragment, as well as bloodstained hairs from its jaws, were analysed for DNA.
