Forensic entomologists use recovered insects and larvae to identify if a discovered body has been moved from the original crime scene, estimate a time of death, and recover valuable information about the victim and the possible crime. Insects recovered from human remains can be a valuable tool for toxicological analysis and DNA of the victim. Over a short period, the fluids (blood and urine) and soft tissues of the body needed for formal analysis will disappear, however, the insects and larvae will still retain traces of the fluids and blood of the corpse. SIRCHIE’s new Forensic Entomology Kit provides all of the tools, chemicals, and containers needed to collect this valuable form of physical evidence.
