Hello I have a time of death question I was hoping someone could help me with. I am a law student investigating some suspicious deaths. We are told that the victims committed suicide, they were found "stiff with rigor" and were cold to the touch.
There were supposedly alive 150 minutes prior to being discovered. I'm wondering if is possible or what the odds are that all three bodies would be described as stiff with rigor and cold to the touch after such a short period of time that they could have died. Thank you so much for any help.
