Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
This program provides a comprehensive introduction to the application of forensic science to crime scenes where human remains have been found. Promoting a team approach to crime scene analysis, Scott Fairgrieve, Tracy Oost, and Gerard Courtin, faculty members of the Department of Forensic Science at Laurentian University, cover the following topics: the decomposition timeline, identifying human remains, identifying burial sites, locating remains via grid-based searching, establishing the crime scene, forensic botany, forensic entomology, forensic anthropology, and special considerations for dealing with remains that have been exposed to water or fire. An excellent tool for training police officers, coroners, medical examiners, firefighters, forensic scientists, and students.
