Time of death

One passage in the book describes how the time of death is estimated based on body temperature, rigor mortis, and in cases of days-old bodies, maggots. I actually know someone in Maryland whose job was to help determine how long a person had been dead based on the type of insects found in the body. The last time I saw him he was ready for a career change.
