Algor Mortis

Algor Mortis is a latin term meaning “Coldness of Death”. Algor Mortis is the reduction of a body’s temperature until it reaches the temperature of the surrounding area; it’s one of the many changes that happens to the body after death.

Algor Mortis is not the most accurate way of calculating the time of death because it’s affected by so many factor and can be manipulated. For example, Richard “The Iceman” Kuklinski used to leave bodies of individuals he killed in a freezer prior to dumping to throw off authorities, and it worked for him, until investigators found ice remains in one the discovered bodies.
