How are cyanides detected in autopsy?

Sahith Naidu  asked the Naked Scientists:
   20 castor beans outer shell is removed and mashed and mixed with DMSO and the solution is spread on hand for just 1 minute.
What then happens?
If potasium cyanide is mixed with DMSO and spread on skin then what is the reaction.
what are the LD50 of above through skin.
How are they detected in autopsy?
Thanks!

   
What do you think?
