Abstract

It is difficult to uncover or find a bright spot in the crime of murder due to victims who cannot be recognized because they may no longer be clear or are in a condition that has been damaged due to the length of handling (tempos delicti) or has been mutilated and the bodies are separated at great distances, as well as from the evidence provided was not sufficient (evidence materials), eyewitnesses at the crime scene (locus delicti) did not dare to speak for security reasons. This research is empirical legal research that is carried out by collecting data from primary data or data obtained directly from research subjects, which is carried out either through observation or direct interviews. An autopsy is an effort to prove the crime of murder, its function is to prove that in judicial practice and efforts to prove criminal cases, the aim of conducting this research is to determine the role of an autopsy in proving the crime of murder committed by the police. This research uses a normative juridical approach. Based on the research results, it can be understood that the role of an autopsy in proving criminal acts of murder committed by the police is to determine age, whether there was abuse, determine whether a person died, and determine the identity of the victim.
