Presented by Dr. Joe Keiper, VMNH Executive Director and expert entomologist
Insects are often useful in cases of human death under mysterious or suspicious circumstances. Decomposition is insect-driven and investigators can use the growth rates of decomposers present to infer time of death. Dr. Keiper, who has assisted authorities on a variety of high-profile homicide cases, will cover how the insects are used and cover case studies where he has assisted law enforcement in cases of homicide and other circumstances.
