Summary
A forensic anthropologist traces his work at his Tennessee body farm lab and cites his contributions to the investigations of several murder cases, as well as his theories about such famous cases as the Lindbergh kidnapping. Dr. Bill Bass, one of the world's leading forensic anthropologists, gained international attention when he built a forensic lab like no other, the Body Farm. Now, this master scientist unlocks the gates of his lab to reveal his most intriguing cases and to revisit the Lindbergh kidnapping and murder, fifty years after the fact
Summary
Nowhere is there another lab like Dr. Bill Bass's: On a hillside in Tennessee, human bodies decompose in the open air, aided by insects, bacteria and birds, unhindered by coffins or mausoleums. At the "Body Farm," nature takes its course, with corpses buried in shallow graves, submerged in water, concealed beneath slabs of concrete, locked in trunks of cars. As stand-ins for murder victims, they serve the needs of science -- and the cause of justice
