Abstract:

Using historical facts, forensic information, and archaeological evidence, the authors present their thesis about who murdered Egypt's most famous pharaoh, Tutankhamen. Two law enforcement specialists in forensics and the psychology of criminal behavior have applied sophisticated crime-solving techniques used in the investigation of contemporary murders to the ancient mystery of how a legendary Egyptian pharaoh met his untimely death. With their unique perspectives, Detectives King and Cooper evaluate evidence that has long been overlooked by specialists in Egyptology and archaeology. After considering natural causes, accident, and suicide, the authors come to the conclusion that Tut's death was most likely a murder.
