CSI: Cinco Bayou
Victim is a female brown rat [rattus norvegicus] estimated to be 3 months of age, weight: 6 ounces, overall length: 14 inches.
Based on the state of rigor mortis, lividity and body temperature the victim died at approximately 6:00 AM, plus or minus 30 minutes.
While there are puncture wounds on both sides of the neck at the base of the skull, the probable proximate cause of death is assumed to be the fracture of a cervical vertebra.
None of those lived in the area had any knowledge of the individual or the incident.
The remains were removed for further processing.
