STAGES OF DEATH
Moment of death:The heart stops, the skin gets tight and grey in color, all the muscles relax, the bladder and bowels empty
After 30 minutes:The skin gets purple and waxy, the lips, finger- and toe nails fade to a pale color or turn white as the blood leaves, blood pools at the lowest parts of the body leaving a dark purple-black stain called lividity, the hands and feet turn blue, the eyes start to sink into the skull
After 4 hours:Rigor mortis starts to set in, the purpling of the skin and pooling of blood continue, rigor mortis begins to tighten the muscles for about another 24 hours, then will reverse and the body will return to a limp state.
After 24 hours:The body is now the temperature of the surrounding environment. In males, the semen dies. The head and neck are now a greenish-blue color. The greenish-blue color continues to spread to the rest of the body. There is the strong smell of rotting meat.
After 3 days:The gases in the body tissues form large blisters on the skin, the whole body begins to bloat and swell grotesquely. This process is speeded up if victim is in a hot environment, or in water. Fluids leak from the mouth, nose, eyes, ears and rectum and urinary opening.
After 3 weeks:The skin, hair, and nails are so loose they can be easily pulled off the corpse. The skin cracks and bursts open in many places because of the pressure of Internal gases and the breakdown of the skin itself
Any more time:Decomposition will continue until body is nothing but skeletal remains, which can take as little as a month in hot climates and two months in cold climates. The teeth are often the only thing left, years and centuries later, because tooth enamel is the strongest substance in the body.
SOME TERMINOLOGY
Pallor Mortis (paleness of death):Almost immediately after death a body of a person with light skin will begin to grow very pale. this is caused by a lack of blood in the capillary region of the blood vessel. 
Algor mortis(cooling of death): After death a human body will no longer be working to keep warm, and as a result will start cooling. 
Rigor Mortis(death stiffness): About three hours after death a chemical change in the muscles of a human corpse causes the limbs of the corpse to become stiff and difficult to move. 
Livor Mortis(bluish color of death) or postmortem lividity: Within 6-12 hours after death a humans body will no longer have a pumping heart to circulate all the blood that is in the body, because of this there is nothing to stop the effect of gravity, and all the blood will start to move with gravity towards the part of the body closest to the ground causing a purplish red discoloration of the skin..

SPONTANEOUS HUMAN COMBUSTION: Can someone really burst up into flames out of nowhere? There have been cases. Usually the victim’s torso and head are burnt beyond recognition, but their extremities such as their hands and feet are fine. There are many theories to explain how & why this happens but no solid explanation. More Information
ACID RAIN: any form of precipitation with high levels of nitric and sulfuric acids.They can make water toxic to the fishes inhabiting rivers, lakes & streams. It also damages forests by robbing the soil of essential nutrients and releasing aluminum into the soil. The aluminum makes it harder for the trees to take up water. More Information
ALL ABOUT DEATH: Have you ever wondered what happens to the human body at the moment of death and when happens to it as time passes by? Well I made this post, a while ago that will answer all your questions. About Death Post
BRAIN INJURY: The saddest part about this is when you have a patient whose aware but can’t communicate it at all. Or when you have patient in vegetative state, where they will smile, cry or frown but it turns out it was just an involuntary spinal cord effect. They are not really there. Brain Injury Post
SLEEP PARALYSIS: Waking up but you can’ move your body at all. You think you see something hovering above you. Or there’s an old women with lifeless eyes at the foot of your bed. But you can’t move your body at all. A bit more terrifying than morbid but here is where you can read a scientific explanation for it. Science Explanation
GENIE: THE WILD CHILD: Genie was a feral child, a child of abuse who was deprived of human communication. As horrible as it was, it led scientists to develop a theory about the critical period for language acquisition. It’s a hypothesis that states that the first few years of life is when a person will readily learn communication & language. More Information
LA BREA TAR PITS: The pits in the tar is called asphalt. It’s incredibly sticky and results when lighter components of petroleum evaporate away. It has the power to trap large animals. What happens is prey, weakened or injured animals would get stuck in the pit. Bigger animals, such as predators would be drawn to the scene where they would stuck as well. More Information
DEATH AT MOUNT EVEREST: Over 200 people have died on their attempt to reach the top. They could suffer from lack of oxygen or even me smashed by raining boulders. The morbid part? The bodies are now used as landmarks. More Information
ELEPHANT’S FOOT: Elephant’s foot is a massive radioactive blob. One of the remainders of the Chernobyl disaster. After just 30 seconds of exposure, dizziness and fatigue will find you a week later. Two minutes of exposure and your cells will begin to hemorrhage (ruptured blood vessels); four minutes: vomiting, diarrhea, and fever. 300 seconds and you have two days to live. More Information
MUMMIFICATION: Have you ever wondered how Ancient Egyptians mummified a body? It includes two steps: embalming & wrapping. Here is a website that will take you through the steps. And yes! They did use a hook to smash the brain and pull it out of the nose. The Website

The ‘Pajama Girl’ Case - On 1 September 1934, the badly burnt body of a young woman, viciously battered about the head and wearing only pyjamas, was found in a road culvert in the township of Albury on the New South Wales-Victoria border in rural Australia. Although Sydney police reconstructed the dead woman’s features and made composite drawings of what she may have looked like in life the also took the extraordinary step of preserving the body in a formalin bath. During the next decade tens of thousands of people viewed the ghastly remains at the University of Sydney, and later Sydney police headquarters, before it was positively identified in 1944

James P. Riva also known as “The Schizophrenic Vampire” is responsible for the death of his handicapped grandmother in Massachusetts in 1980.  Riva believed he was a 700-year-old vampire who needed to drink her blood in order to survive.  For this, he was sentenced to life in prison.  

Riva has now converted to Islam.  He spends his days in prison creating art & helping other inmates with their legal work.

In April of 1980, James P. Riva shot his handicapped grandmother twice as she sat in her wheelchair. The gun was loaded with golden bullets. He drank the warm blood gushing from the wounds before trying to cover his tracks by burning her body and her home.

Jimmy Riva was a troubled youngster who developed a bloodlust in his kindergarden days. He became obsessed with the notion that his infirm grandmother was a vampire predator, who was robbing him of his blood as he slept. He believed that his only hope lay in shooting her with golden bullets. Not only did he shoot her, but he also stabbed her repeatedly because a “vampire told him that was what he had to do.”

Riva had a history of mental illness dating back to 1975 - 78, when he spent time in a mental institution. The diabolical plot to slaughter his grandmother was the culmination of a whole series of bizzare incidents in the life of James Riva.

He began by drawing horrific pictures and slowly moved to killing and drinking the blood of animals, until finally, he snapped completely. He gave two separate stories when confronted about his crime. He told his mother that he was a vampire who would gain strength from drinking his grandmother’s blood.

He also told psychiatrists he thought his grandmother was a vampire who came to feed on him as he slept. He believed he was satisfying his masters or superiors in the netherworld of vampires by making a human kill. He thought that if he killed “everybody who was bad to him, he would come back as a handsome man and have a car and girls and his life would be fine.”

At the conclusion of his lengthy trial, the jury deliberated for 3 hours and found him guilty of second degree murder. He was also found guilty of arson, and assult and battery on one of the arresting officers. He showed no emotion at the reading of the verdict. Judge Brady sentanced James Riva to life imprisonment in Walpole State Prison on the murder charge, and concurrently to ten to twenty years on the arson charge. (Source:Murderpedia.org)

nonmuslimterrorists:

These men are all terrorists. None of them are Muslim. None of them were labelled ‘terrorists’ by the mainstream media, who instead chose to use the terms ‘mentally ill’, ‘shooter’, ‘killer’ and other names much tamer than that normally reserved for Muslim perpetrators.

1. James Holmes: Aurora cinema shooting, 2012.
Death count: 24

2. Adam Lanza: Sandy Hook kindergarten shooting, 2012.
Death count: 27 (excluding himself)

3. Anders Breivik: Oslo shooting, 2011.
Death count: 77

4. James von Brunn: Holocaust Memorial shooting, 2009.
Death count: 1

The final one shares the same death toll as the recent Woolwich murder. Yet why, in both articles (and in all articles listed in this post regarding all of these perpetrators) is the word ‘terrorist’ never once mentioned? Whereas the Woolwich murderer, who is Muslim but linked with no violent organisation, was instantly labelled a terrorist and sparked strong anti-immigration protests in the UK.

I smell an absurd double standard.

David Gregory Ludwig (born April 28th, 1987) is responsible for the murder of his girlfriends parents, Michael and Cathryn Borden.  Ludwig was 18, and his girlfriend Kara Beth only 14.  Upon finding out about their relationship, her parents were not pleased.  When the older Ludwig stayed out with his younger girlfriend all night, a confrontation took place between Ludwig and her parents.  He shot and killed them both, and ran away with his girlfriend.  They were apprehended when Ludwig front-ended his parents Volkswagen Jetta into a tree.

Kara Beth Borden has admitted she ran after him after he murdered her parents and left the Borden home…she wanted to go with him, and get married.
