Workshop’s Description:
When a violent or unexplained death occurs, there is a long way to go from documenting the death scene to solve the case. Collecting all the potential scientific evidence and take them for a thorough several medical and lab analysis is an important part of the criminal investigation. Thus, what to do if we are dealing with a suspicion of homicide? What steps do we need to take through a complete autopsy? If you want to go into a crime scene investigation and post mortem examination, helping to solve cases using your knowledge, this workshop is perfect for you!
