Definition Edit

Antemortem identification media are

[r]ecords, samples, and photographs taken prior to death. These include (but are not limited to) fingerprints, dental x-rays, body tissue samples, photographs of tattoos, or other identifying marks. These “predeath” records would be compared against records completed after death to help establish a positive identification of human remains.[1]
