Otzi, German tourists, Austrian authority
Otzi was found by German tourists on September nineteenth, 1991. The body was at first viewed to be a modern corpse just the several which have been discovered in the region. The body was recovered by the Austrian authority and taken to Innsbruck. The age of the Iceman was discovered to be around 40s and the subsequent surveys showing that the body had been located inside the Italian territory. The body was extremely analyzed, measured, x-rayed and dated. The gut and tissue contents were examined microscopically. When the archeologists were joined by forensic scientists, the unique case and new research revealed shocking answers.
Investigation into Otzi's death took off at the scene of discovery. The scientists wanted to know when Otzi died, so they examined the ice in which his body was found. At the scene, pollen grains were discovered that were identified as coming from autumn-flowering plants, so conclusions were that Otzi died in the autumn (Learoyd et al., 2002). In addition, the evidence implied that Otzi died of hypothermia after the storm (Forensic Science Central, 2005). The body of the Iceman was investigated using X-rays and computer assisted tomography scans. Unhealed rib fractures were discovered, which resulted into a number of disaster theories. One of the theories that emerged was that Otzi might have been involved in a fight, and that made him suffer severe injuries to his chest and ribs, but managed to escape into the mountains. He was tired when he reached the top of the mountain, and he laid down to rest in a sheltered gully. It was there that he died of hypothermia and was buried by ice. The theory seemed sensible, but it was challenged with new evidences emerging for the cause of his death.
[...] Forensic Test Completed Summary As mentioned earlier, the corpse of the Iceman was handed over to Innsbruck Anatomy Department for treatment. With subsequent investigations determining that the corpse was located approximately ninety meters inside Italy, it was transferred to a museum in Bolzano in 1998. A number of scientific technologies have been used to study the corpse since the body was discovered, and forensic analysis has contributed to the processes of determining the cause and context of Otzi's death. It is recently that the forensic analysis has provided the exact cause of death. [...]
[...] The possible answers to the questions are assumptions that the Iceman must have been attacked by unknown people, and motive of this attack still remains a mystery to be solved.

[...] The DNA test results indicated that they came from four separate people. Blood from an arrow head indicated that they belonged to two different people, meaning the Iceman shot two people and retrieved the arrows (Discovery Channel, 2003). The scientists also supported the forensic report that Otzi had deep cuts in his right hand and wrist consistent with defensive wounds. The cause of Otzi's death was concluded in 2007 by a team of scientists from Italy and Switzerland. These scientists used multi-slice computed tomography to come up with new evidence to clarify the cause of iceman's death. [...]
[...] When did the Iceman die? How did he die? What was the cause of his death? How did the forensic team come up with the exact cause of his death? Have people who killed the Iceman been discovered? Where exactly was the Iceman involved in a fight? Can the forensic team come up with a possible explanation of what might cause a fight? Was the Iceman ever involved in any sought of crime? Is his death an act of revenge or retaliation? [...]
