    Abstract

    Human bite marks on human tissue have been important items of evidence in homicide and rape convictions in recent years. The literature also describes the apprehension of burglary suspects based on booth marks left on foodstuff. This report is the first case description recorded where chewing gum has been an essential part of the evidence in a homicide conviction.
