Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of a 78-year-old woman suspected of committing suicide is reported; an analysis of the evidence suggesting that she threw herself into the river after stabbing and cutting her neck, left forearm, abdomen and back. Hesitation marks on the back are relatively rare in cases of suicide. We discuss the manner of death and assume the mode in which her injuries were inflicted.
