Death By Strangulation





This differs from hanging in that the body is not suspended. It may be
effected by a ligature round the neck, or by direct pressure on the
windpipe with the hand, in which case death is said to be caused by
throttling. Strangulation is frequently suicidal, but may be
accidental. When homicidal, much injury is done to the neck, owing to
the force with which the ligature is drawn. In throttling, the marks of
the finger-nails are found on the neck.
