Establishing the individuality of an unidentified or mutilated body is a challenging task in the forensic practice. In the current study an effort was made to find out the feasibility estimation of stature from mandibluar arch length (MAL) as measured at autopsy between prominent landmarks. Statistical analysis of the data collected from 65 individuals was done to find out the relationship between of MAL with that of stature and to derive a regression equation formula. By using this formula we can calculate the stature of an individual using mandible with small error. © 2014, Indian Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology. All rights reserved.

Deaths due to burns though rare in the western context are frequently encountered in the Indian scenario. A study was conducted at Government General Hospital Gulbarga over a period of five years to find out the incidence and influence of different factors leading to fatal burns injury. Out of the total 525 cases studied maximum were found in the age group of 20-30 years. 115 patients were brought dead and the remaining 410 succumbed later after the admission. Among these 161 cases survived for five days after the injury. Most common cause of death in our study was septicemia which accounted for 343 cases. Maximum number of deaths i.e., 450 was accidental in nature and least common was homicidal deaths accounting for only 23 cases. The paper also describes the comparison between our study and studies conducted by different authors across the country to find out the similarities and dissimilarities in various factors affecting the burns victims.

Deaths due to burns are common causes of unnatural deaths contributing nearly 25% of all autopsies. Dowry deaths are a menace to the society and many of these are caused by burns. In the current study a total of 525 cases of burns were analysed over a period of five years at Government General hospital Gulbarga. Of these 381(72.5%) cases were of female. During the five years the cases were almost evenly distributed with highest of 121 cases in the year 2000. out of the 525 cases studied 450 case were accidental in nature and 52 cases were suicidal and 23 cases were homicidal in nature based on history from the relatives and inquest papers furnished by police which some times was sketchy. Out of the 381 female cases, 92 were unmarried and the remaining 289 cases were of married females. Maximum numbers of cases i.e 289 were admitted to hospital and 92 were brought dead. Out of these 289 cases, a maximum of 74 cases survived for period of more than five years.

Height is one of the important factors required to establish the individuality of an unidentified body or mutilated part of such body. In the current study an effort was made to calculate the height from percutaneous tibial length (PCTL) as measured by surface anatomical landmarks. Statistical analysis of the data collected from 100 individuals from Baglkot was done to find out the relationship between of PCTL with that of height and to derive a regression equation formula. By using this formula we can calculate the height of an individual when only mutilated leg portion is available for autopsy.
