After he killed himself and his bride ingested cyanide, their bodies were burned (per his final wishes). Those charred remains were found and autopsied by Russian a month later and according to Professor Perrier "What they found were charred pieces of bone, such as pieces of skull, the lower jaw and part of the upper jaw consisting of a bridge with nine units" (http://www.fpp.co.uk/Hitler/docs/death/CorpseID2.html).
Over time other forensic experts confirmed the finding. In 1972 Hitler's unique dental work was verified by 'newly' released X-rays of Hitler's head (originally snapped on July 20, 1944). Those images showed bridge work, periodontal disease and "very unusual dental work that backed the results of the original Russian autopsy.
Dental Forensics Helped Jail Theodore Robert "Ted" Bundy
Some terrorists focus on Americans, others on Jews while others have a finite vision that ultimately help them earn the moniker of serial killer.Theodore Robert "Ted" Bundy is one such psychopath that can loosely fit in the terrorist category. Bundy is known for kidnapping, assaulting, killing and raping, numerous young women in the 1970s. Dental forensics were helped to get him behind bars.
One of Bundy's victims was 20-year-old Lisa Levy. Bundy broke into the Chi Omega sorority house on or around January 15, 1978, went into Levy's bedroom. He then proceeded to beat her unconscious, strangled her, rip off one of her nipples, bit deeply into her left buttock and sexually assaulted her with a hair mist bottle (Foreman, Laura; The editors of Time-Life Books (1992). Serial Killers – True Crime (Hardcover ed.). Alexandria, Virginia: Time-Life Books. ISBN 978-0-7835-0001-0). As disturbing as it may sound it was a good thing he did as he left incriminating evidence which eventually lead to his arrest and prison sentence.
When Bundy bit done on Levy's left buttock, he left a bite impression. Forensic odontologists Richard Souviron and Lowell Levine matched castings of that mark to work on Bundy's teeth. That information was submitted into evidence and as a result he was sentenced to death.
