Anyway here's my question.
Setting is present day. My character's been performing a lengthy heart massage on a man (but it failed and he didn't survive). Question is, would bruises from the heart massage appear on his chest, post-mortem?
I've been looking it up all around google and all I could find is answers that don't reassure me fully:
One source says that bruises can appear post-mortem (apparently a body that had drowned had a bruise appear on its forearm from being grabbed out of the water).
Another source says that post-mortem bruise needs great force to appear, so I'm wondering if a heart massage would be enough to make bruising appear. But since the other website seems to say that grabbing someone out of the water created post-mortem bruising... I don't know what to think any more.
So um... help? Please? :)
