3. According to a 2019 report released in Forensic Science International: Synergy and led by Australian researcher Alyson Wilson, corpses may continue to move more than a year after death. Movement is believed to be the result of a process of decomposition that causes the ligaments of the corpses to dry up and contract, pulling the limbs as they do.
