Bodies We've Buried: Inside the National Forensic Academy, the World's Top CSI Training School, Jarrett Hallcox, Amy Welch, Penguin Books, 2007
Two National Forensic Science Institute administrators invite readers into what the Washignton Post calls "the Harvard of hellish violence"- the only hands-on CSI school of its kind, where students are trained in burial recovery with actual humn remains.
With exclusive access to a world normally off-limits to all but law enforcement officials, doctors, and scientists, you'll go behind the scenes of the ten-week course that discloses the uncensored realities of burial exhumations and the fascinating art of forensic investigation.
Through firsthand stories of dedicated (and often unsettles) students themselves, Hallcox and Welch examin trace evidence of often-missed clues in hair and fiber, and shed light on the facts of the decomposition process, the effects of bombs and fire on flesh, and the importance of bloodstain patter analysis-and show how the remarkable science of CSI has solved some of the most famous cases in recent history.
