Caption: Colour enhanced head x-ray of a murder victim showing groups of shotgun pellets across the face and jaw. Forensic pathology is a branch of medicine used for legal purposes and concerned with determining cause of death, examination of injuries due to crime and negligence, and examination of tissue samples relevant to crimes. With shotgun wounds the degree of spread forms a measure of the range at which the weapon was fired. At short range, as shown here, the shot has hardly any chance to spread and the whole charge tears a deep and concentrated wound, leaving localized scorching and tattooing. No date or location available.
