ADVANCED CSI / DEATH INVESTIGATION

Often referred to as "bugs, bones, and graves" here at the training center, Advanced CSI picks up where the regular CSI class ends. Death investigation scenes proceed like any other crime scene until it comes to the deceased. 

This course opens with techniques for processing bodies at autopsy and proceeds through the stages of decomposition to collecting insect evidence from decomposing bodies in the field, locating and excavating burials, and searching for those remains scattered by animals, elements, and time.
