New Bodyfarm In Colorado

Bluesun Sent me this link

Colorado Mesa University is using its high altitude and arid setting to create what will soon be the country’s newest body farm.

Coroners can walk into a crime scene and take a few measurements and observations and tell police how long the person has been dead. How do you think they figured that out? I do the same thing at work, I’ll come up to an animal cage and find one of my critters dead, and its sometimes very important to know WHEN they died.

Only real way to do it is leave some bodies around and see how they decompose.

The body farm is even more eleborate going over every scenario people can think of from different burial methods and environments conditions to freezing the body first. It all helps put monsters in jail!

Cool Stuff!

    It’s good work, but I’m still not sure that I could donate my body to science like that. Mad props to those who do, though.

    Do not dig up those Dark Earth mounds in Colorado. Even if Foon asks you nicely.
