COTHEL occurs to the areas of human bodies involved in severe car wrecks or who are maimed by traumatic blows.
COTHEL WHITES are freshly exposed areas of white cracked bone. Freshly torn, or skinned flesh expose these areas.
Cothel doesn't only apply to exposed bone trauma, it's also the bleached effect you see when shining a light on objects in the dark, revealing objects in their chalky, palish, bare nature; it's very scary seen when shining a light around holes or areas with allot of shadows, and especially dead bodies at night.
1) I could see the cothel when I shined the light in her mouth, her teeth and trachea were scary!
2) His cotheled knee cap was so fresh, it was hardly bleeding when I saw it -- just fresh white bone!
3) Please don't shine the light on that wall, the cothel effect it creates is too scary! Especially with that black hole in it!; or simply: The cothel is too scary!
