If you are a fan of shows such as CSI or NCIS, then you know that medical investigators can determine cause of death in murder cases based on the body. Can they really determine the cause of death or what happened to the victim based on the location of the body, how long it was there or even injuries to the body? What happens when a skeleton is discovered? How do scientists use bones to solve crimes? In this unique lecture from the Mutter Museum, College of Physicians of Philadelphia, learn about the role of forensic anthropology in criminal investigation; how skeletal remains are the key to identifying a unique individual and understanding the cause of their death.
