    Questions from Kids: What is Rigor Mortis?

    A quick review of the basics of what rigor mortis is, what it is not, and what it can tell us about a case.  The second half of the episode is more scientifically intensive and is intended to answer questions we received from adults about rigor mortis.

    The Problems with Perceiving "Surgical Skill" in Death Investigations

    The Problems with Perceiving "Surgical Skill" in Death Investigations

    Often you hear it mentioned in cases-- like the "Jack the Ripper" killings-- that a perpetrator exhibited "surgical skill".  There are a few problems with this and it can easily lead investigators (professional and avocational alike) away from the guilty party if they are not careful.

    Reasons Why Some Aircraft are Never Found

    Reasons Why Some Aircraft are Never Found

    A quick and straightforward general explanation for why aircraft go missing and why we have to put up with nonsense like the "Bermuda Triangle", etc.


    If you enjoy this or any of the other episodes, it would be appreciated if you made a donation to the nonprofit organization that sponsors the show, Kolibri Forensics.   We are a team of volunteers who look for missing aircraft (both civilian and military), their crews, and their passengers in order to help close the cases and assure a proper burial for the victims.  https://www.kolibriforensics.org/how-to-help/donate.html

    Caution: There are a couple instances of mild swearing in this so if you don't want your kids to hear the use of the word "bull****", you might want to listen when they are not around.
