Abstract

 Background: CUT THROAT INJURY can be homicidal, suicidal or accidental in manner. However, in the absence of tentative cuts, deep CUT THROAT INJURY usually raised suspicion towards homicide, even against the circumstantial history provided by close relatives or eye witness. DECAPITATION or almost DECAPITATION is usually noticed in homicidal assault using any HEAVY CUTTING WEAPON like sword and axe or in suicidal railway injury.Case Report: A 91-years old, otherwise healthy lady (empress of one high profile Company) died due to almost DECAPITATION as a result of accidental fall of wheel chair and trapping of neck underneath roof of corridor while moving up in an elevator (lift). With suspicion of property dispute, the investigating police agency was not ready to accept it as a case of accident till the neck injury was clarified demonstrating associated injuries during autopsy and later during visit to SCENE OF DEATH.Conclusion: In high profile case, video recording of autopsy findings, even if not mandatory as per the law, should be made to remain in safer side. Although police should not be allowed during conduction of autopsy, it will be healthy practice to clarify any doubts then and there over autopsy table, if the case warrants so.
