Summary
In this episode, Dr. Michael Taylor of ESR, a government-owned New Zealand Crown Research Institute, gives host John Watt a crash course in forensic science and explains his own field of expertise: back spatter analysis. Nardia Foote is a grad student who works with Michael to better understand the process of back spatter relating to cranial gunshots. John catches up with Nardia at a firing range where she's set up an experiment to see precisely what happens when a head is shot with different caliber firearms. Using several different guns, some molded gelatin and plastic casing to simulate a head, and a high-speed camera, Nardia sets to work simulating her very own crime scene.
