Suspected cases of strangulation are as a rule clarified during investigations following the immediate after-death period. However, cases of suspected strangulation might be disguised as natural deaths, especially in areas where medical assistance is inexistent or superficial. These cases will come sometimes into the scope of the coroner, or legal medicine physician, even several years after burial.
