A corpse completely converted into adipocere and showing two adjacent bone defects--a typical gunshot entrance wound and a keyhole lesion--is reported. Postmortem changes, a comminuted fracture of the cranial base, and destruction of the bullets made it impossible to determine the direction of fire through the keyhole lesion. Gunshot wounds may show various atypical forms, including keyhole lesions, and especially in old corpses, the distinction between an entrance wound and an exit wound can be very difficult, even if a careful complete autopsy is performed.
