The goal of this 3 day training program is to acquaint the novice investigator with all facets of death investigation, including the esoteric terminology that is unique to homicide cases. It is also the purpose of the course to bring experienced investigators in touch with modern forensic concepts that will assist in case formulation, suspect identification, arrest and courtroom presentation and prosecution.

Attendees will become familiar with the indicators of suspicious death and learn just how equivocal the death scene can be. They will also become confident in assessing the crime scene and determining what type of action should be taken through the prioritization of viable leads.

The course is designed to enable the investigator to immediately interpret what he or she sees, the moment they walk onto the crime scene, and to derive from that knowledge an analytical approach to the investigation. All areas of the investigative process crucial to the successful conclusion of the case will be examined and discussed thoroughly. 

Actual real-life examples will help the investigator become acquainted with forensic concepts not familiar to the beginner, such as lividity, rigor mortis, algor mortis, decomposition, ante mortem and postmortem trauma, etc. There is a heavy emphasis on wound recognition, modes of death, and what to look for at the autopsy.
