William Maples’s Dead Men Do Tell Tales (1995)
William Maples was one of America’s greatest forensic anthropologists and used tool marks to help solve grisly murders. In the book Dead Men Do Tell Tales, Dr. Maples describes a case involving the discovery of a headless body. Bite marks on the remains of the body were identified as those belonging to sharks. Maples determined from fine saw marks on the victim’s neck vertebra that the head had been sawed off before the sharks had attacked the body. From the pattern made on the bone, Maples was able to identify a hacksaw as the tool used to separate the head from the body.
