NUNEZ SALAS, Aurelio. La exhumación y sus aportes ministeriales y judiciales: un caso de radical cambio judicial por exhumación. Med. leg. Costa Rica [online]. 1995, vol.11-12, n.2-1, pp.53-57. ISSN 2215-5287.

A case study presented here shows that although the first findings (declarations, cirminalistic reports and forensic chemistry) indicated an atypical suicide, the report of bullet trajectory suggested otherwise. A suspect was then arrested for 60 days, until exhumation proved that the experts had erroneously identified which was the entrance orifice.

Keywords : Review; atypical suicide; exhumation.
