Spontaneous human combustion, homicide, suicide or household accident

F. Mekereş, C. L. Buhaş


Abstract: In an attempt to reach the most rational explanation possible, a complex analysis and evaluation of the pros and cons for spontaneous human combustion, murder, suicide and domestic accident is required for the death in atypical circumstances of an 80-year-old man from a rural area, who had burns on 90% of his body. The analysis of research data from the scene and from the autopsy led us to the most reasonable explanation, that of a domestic accident caused by the accidental ignition of nylon fabric used for clothing.
Keywords: spontaneous human combustion, murder, suicide, domestic accident.
