Unattended death is another difficult situation for families to deal with.

This Atlanta man’s body had been laying for nearly two weeks from the coroner’s estimation, maybe longer. Once a body starts to decompose there are stages that happen that give clues as to how long the person has been dead.

As strange as it may seem the maggots in this situation developed more rapidly than usual due to cocaine in the nose. Oddly enough, cocaine use can speed up the development of maggots in a decomposing body!

Forensic scientists have found various drugs, chemicals, toxins in maggots which has proven to be useful in determining the cause of death in many cases.

The maggots will feed in other places as well but particularly dark and secluded places. When a body has been dead this long not only are the maggots populating there is other insects and a horrible stench that is very difficult to remove.

The smell of decomposition and death is so foul it can even permeate walls and furniture. We will have to not only clean up the residue, body fluids, and insects from this death we will also have to use special chemicals and cleanup procedures to permanently remove this smell.

In situations like this one other cleanup companies might come in and mask the smell with deodorizing sprays that cover up but not totally get rid of the odor.
