The Connaught Studio, Worthing presents Real Life CSI at 7.30 pm on Thursday November 27th.
The interpretation of insect evidence in criminal investigations can discover time of death, how a body was stored post-mortem, if a body was moved and can even identify where a missing body might be through victim’s DNA found on insect remains. Dr Martin Hall from the Natural History Museum discusses forensic entomology in criminal investigations, from crime scene to court room.
Martin has worked as a forensic entomologist on more than 150 criminal cases during the past 25 years. He is author or co-author of more than 120 peer-reviewed scientific publications, many on the biology of blowflies, the insects of primary evidential importance in forensic entomology. Martin has been a Vice-President of the Royal Entomological Society, London and was the founding President of the European Association for Forensic Entomology (2002-2006). He is currently Associate Editor (Entomology) for Forensic Science International and on the Editorial Board of Medical and Veterinary Entomology. He is married with two sons and lives in Sussex.
Tickets are £12.50.
The Connaught Studio is at 3 Union Place, Worthing.
