The objective of this study was to assess the decomposition rate and insect succession of carrions treated in different ways. Pigs were treated (killed) with various ways (electric shock, drown, knife and poison treatments). Then, the decomposition status was recorded from these carrions. In addition, insects occurred close the carrions were also collected through the decomposition process. The results indicated that the decomposition rate of carrion treated with poison was significantly slower than those treated with electric shock, drown and knife. However, the decomposition rate was similar among the other three treatments (electric shock, drown and knife). The insects collected form carrions belong most to Diptera and Coleoptera, each contained 15 and 5 families, respectively. Most insects occurred on carrions belong to Calliphorid insect (Diptera). The results also revealed that the insect families collected among four treatments were not significantly different. In addition, the larvae of Diptera dead in poison treatment. These data may be useful in estimating the postmortem interval (PMI) of forensic entomological study or crime scene.
