    After years of talking about a new forensic research facility, they are finally going to start on one. Let the madness begin.

    (I had the checker at the grocery store last night tell me she's transfering specifically to try to get into the program.)

    That's a cheap horror movie waiting to happen right there.

    i especially wonder how they will use the facility to teach Time of Death with donated cadavers. Perhaps it's a Pass/Fail course with severe consequences.

    "bodies in the facility will be treated with respect and according to regular protocol for the study of human remains. A Hazard Analysis Critical Control System will be utilized to protect workers at the facility as well as individuals outside the facility. Netting and fencing will be used to keep intruders out of the facility, including scavengers and predators such as vultures and coyotes."


    They are just going to dump bodies out in a field and let them rot.

    Yes and no. Depends on the scenario they are running - one of the reasons why they have pushed for this for years is because of the climate down here is different from the other locations. Bodies rot at a different rate, inside or out, covered or uncovered etc. Also humidity and temperature make a difference. Not to mention this is a part of the forensic anthropology program. They won't just "dump" bodies.

    "... bodies in the facility will be treated with respect and according to regular protocol for the study of human remains..."

    How long before someone with the wrong sort of interest in dead bodies manages to get a job there I wonder?
