Body of a 42-year-old male found dead in the steam room approximately 8 hours after having gone alone to sauna. Blood alcohol concentration 2.3 per mille; urine alcohol concentration 3.2 per mille. Due to the long heat exposure, a ‘parboiled’ appearance with patchy loss of epidermis due to skin slippage was found when the body was recovered and showing postmortem drying of the lesions.
