Behind the Tape: The MDP Crime Lab Explains a Homicide Scene

Why is the victim’s body out there so long? Why don’t you cover them? Why does it seem like everyone is just standing around? 

When it comes to crime scenes, the community has a lot of questions. In this video we bring you behind the crime tape to answer those questions and more, and explain what really happens at a homicide scene.

Also, it is “National Forensic Science Week.” Thanks to the amazing people working for the MPD Crime Lab. From exonerating the innocent to identifying the guilty, the team plays a crucial role in solving crimes throughout the city. We appreciate your dedication and hard work!
