A Body in the River: The Application of Environmental Science in Murder Investigations

Thursday, 15 October 2015 - 6:00pm
Barnard’s Inn Hall, Holborn, EC1N 2HH

The bodies of murder victims, whole or in pieces, often end up in rivers or canals. Carolyn Roberts' work as an Expert Witness with UK police forces has applied the principles of hydrology to murder investigations. 

In these tragic and gruesome settings, environmental science can help to identify where bodies have come from or gone to. Drawing on macabre and fascinating case studies, the lecture will range from particular cases to general principles of tracing bodies, and the application of science in supporting the law. 

Probably not for those of a nervous disposition, but of guaranteed interest to the curious.

You do not need to register for this free public event. It will be run on a "first come, first served" basis, so please feel free to arrive a little early to ensure that you can get a seat. Doors will be opened half an hour before the start of the event.
