A study conducted by an Australian institution, in a secret specialized facility near Sydney, revealed that the bodies of the dead are moving during their decomposition.
The Australian Foundation has placed “time cameras” at a research facility for bodies and dead, and was able to record the movement of dead bodies during their decomposition.
The camera took photographs of the bodies once every half-hour for 17 months and found that the limbs were moving during the drought and decomposition of bodies, according to the Australian National Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
The researcher at the Australian Foundation for the Experimental Research of the history of bodies Alison Wilson that this discovery may be important for investigations into crimes and deaths, according to the newspaper “The Straits Times.”
“What we found was that the arms were moving so clearly that if the arms were placed under the body, they would end up next to the body.”
She said that one arm came out from the bottom of the body away from it before returning and approaching the side almost touch it, adding that movements could be the result of shrinking ligaments and shrinking during dry.
The secret facility was set up near Sydney three years ago to investigate the decomposition of corpses under different circumstances to restore different crime scene scenarios.
Newcastle University professor forensic anthropologist Xanthi Mallet said the discovery could be important for crime scene investigators, who assume that the status of a newly decomposed body is the same as when a person died.
“I think people will be surprised at how far the limbs move,” she told ABC. “Because I was surprised when I saw her, especially the amount of arm movement. It was amazing.”
