Jerry Rose, a professor emeritus of Anthropology from the University of Arkansas, demonstrates with illustrations how the dead tell their stories to forensic science investigators. He begins with the fortuitous events that initiated his 35 year career as a forensic scientist and proceeds with actual cases that illustrate how forensic scientists coax the dead to give up the secrets of their stories: dead girls in the swamp, body parts floating in a Coleman cooler, delivery of the wrong cremation, house fire victim, the wrong body buried, and forgotten at the hospital, among others.

Instructor: Dr. Jerry Rose
