A review of 300 cases of alleged strangulation assault, submitted for misdemeanor prosecution by the San Diego City Attorney's Office, led to a search for medical evidence that would be useful to prosecute these cases (see Strack et al. in this issue of the Journal). The injuries identified in these non-fatal cases are similar to injuries found in fatal domestic violence strangulation assaults. This article reviews the injuries recognizable at autopsy in cases of strangulation in domestic violence victims.
