Forensic Entomology In The Righting Of Wrongs
This talk will show how forensic entomology was used to in righting three major wrongful convictions. ***Warning: graphic material

Presenter: Dr. Gail S. Anderson, MPM, PhD, D-ABFE, F-AAFS, F-CSFS, SFU Professor, Associate Director, School Criminology, Co-Director, CFR

About the talk:

Forensic entomology is the study of insects on a dead body with a view to estimating the elapsed time since death as well as whether the body has been disturbed, or moved, presence and position of wounds, whether the victim has been poisoned, and, in living victims, the length of time of abuse or neglect. Forensic entomology is also valuable in wildlife, domestic and pet animal abuse and cruelty. It is frequently used in homicide investigations as well as SPCA cases. This presentation will illustrate how forensic entomology was key in proving the wrongful conviction of a person in three true-life cases. Warning - very graphic slides will be shown and this talk is not for the squeamish or young children.
