Creators of crime dramas, mysteries, thrillers, or suspense will inevitably come across a dead body… maybe several. Corpses contain a body of evidence and thus, the keys to unlocking our fictional crimes. Jennifer Dornbush, forensic specialist and crime writer, will walk you through the inner workings of death investigation and how to create authentic death investigation scenes for those story moments when you need "to drop a body.” All this, in a safe, non-gory setting… with a little gallows humor.
