Death due to electrocution can be at times a challenge for the autopsy surgeon as in half of low voltage electrocutions or in certain circumstances; there is no specific electrical burn or other autopsy findings suggestive of electrocution. Electrocution as a cause of death is often established on the basis of circumstantial evidences and excluding other possible causes. The present case describes a case of fatal electrocution with the presence of a distinct electric burn mark seen at the point of entry of electric current and also two distinguishable marks at the point of exit.
