Suicide with a nail gun device: wound ballistics and wound entry morphology

, : Suicide with a nail gun device: wound ballistics and wound entry morphology. Archiv für Kriminologie 195(5-6): 153-158

A man committed suicide by a contact shot to the left chest from a nail-gun. The nail caused a slit-like entrance wound and a penetrating heart injury. The front side of the nailgun led to an outer "muzzle imprint", the muzzle and the nail to an inner "muzzle imprint". Wound ballistics of nails are discussed.
