Psychological Post-Mortem

Psychological autopsy or psychological post-mortem is a method or an investigating tool developed in 1961 that aids in the determination of a person's death. This method is usually used in cases of suspected suicide or homicide in an attempt to reconstruct the personal life and character of the deceased.

There are about 40 different categories that need to be analysed to complete this rather complex endeavour. One can say that this rarely used method is a combination of science, archaeology, detective work and art.
