One case of infanticide and abandonment by the natural mother is presented. The body was extensively damage, evidently by a fox. Fortunately, since the body showed less advance putrefaction due to cold weather, it was possible to narrow down the case of death and to detect the drug which had been forced down the victim's throat before the crime. However, our estimates of age and postmortem interval were erroneous. We comment as to why we were misled. Pathological problems associated with 'aspiration of vomitus' are also discussed.
