    I'm a complete layperson on this subject, but I'd guess that due to Florida's climate in the months of June (hot with alot of humidity/moisture), the body would bloat up, because of expanding gasses.
    The body would not mummify, as it would in a hot, dry, desert climate.

    I think after bloating, the body (skin and tissue) would 'stretch to it's limit', and rips or tears would occur, finally spilling fluids and releasing the built up gasses.

    I am still searching, as I said, this is not an easy topic to find research results on.

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.

    When you think of how much hotter it is inside of an automobile during the month of June, in the Florida heat- compared to the heat outside of a car- it makes sense that the decomposition process would be exacerbated.

    Decompostion would occur much more rapidly, than if the body were left outside, for instance. Decomposition could possibly occur in half the time, lets say, than if the body were not left in the higher temperatures of a closed up automobile.

    The car could potentially act in the same manner as an oven.

    The Cherokee people were by no means frontier savages. By the 1830s they developed their own written language, printed newspapers and elected leaders to representative government.

    I give up on simple term searches. We need a forensic scientist or medical examiner's access to research. That is all I can find. Maybe some of this is published in terms I am just not putting in.

    I have been looking for the forensics that were released and I can't seem to find the one that they talk about Adipocere, I am so sure I read it in one of the doc's. Now, maybe this is found on all decomposing bodies? Anyone else recall reading about it? If so could you please share the link...Thank You so much!


    I found another article that explains the Stages of Adipocere.

    A Preliminary Investigation of the Stages of Adipocere Formation
    "Snip" http://www.astm.org/JOURNALS/FORENSI...JFS2002230.htm
    Abstract
    Adipocere is a postmortem decomposition product which forms from a body's adipose tissue. This study aimed to chemically demonstrate the process of conversion from adipose tissue to adipocere.
    Samples of adipocere were collected from pig cadavers that were allowed to decompose for varying intervals.
    Samples of soil were collected from beneath the cadavers and analyzed to determine the leaching effect of adipocere. Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) was used to quantify the fatty acid composition of pig adipocere.
    Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) was used as a confirmatory test and to identify other components such as triglycerides and calcium salts of fatty acids. The study demonstrates the process of adipocere formation and the stages of formation through which the process passes using chemical techniques

    yes, the photos shock me & I am queasy right now but there was a warning so I can only blame myself

    the info is interesting & important and victims deserve to have sleuths who are willing to stomach this

    I don't have any imput (I am scientifically challenged) but I've enjoyed the parts I've understood so far

    Texas State has a Forensic Anthropology department that focuses on decomposition. I took some terms from it, googled with them, and came up with these. If nothing else, we can pick up some search terms to use for more research papers on the net.

    I love you BeanE! You have an amazing talent for finding information. (Got your back too for that alibi when the Fed's grab our computers.)
