The Body Farm
« on: 29/04/2004 09:47:17 »
For anyone that is interested William Bass - the man behind the Body Farm at the University of Tennessee wrote a book recently called "Death's Acre".  It gives a fascinating insight into how the Body Farm came about and details some of the cases he has worked on.  It is also quite funny in places.  Be prepared for a bit of gore though - it is very descriptive.

I'm sure the body farm has it's own website, but this is a small insight into the activities carried on there.

What do they do to control the smell?  I wouldn't want to live downwind of this farm.
