  • "18 Tiny Deaths: The Untold Story of Frances Glessner Lee"

    I have just started reading this book about the life and work of Frances Glessner Lee.

    Pursuing a career in legal medicine, she eventually branched out into the scientific investigation of murder.

    Her unique take on murder investigation was to create what she called "Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death",
    which entailed constructing very detailed models of actual crime scenes, complete with windows and doors that actually opened etc.

    These reproductions were intended to help forensic students assess actual crime scenes and evidence.

    Having checked on the Casebook website, I see that there are a few references to Lee, however I confess that I hadn't heard of her until I picked up the book in Waterstones. I hope that you will forgive me resurrecting this topic again, but it really is a great story.

    The models are amazing things, and I attach a link below to a site where you can wander through her intricate creations, I also attach a link to the book on the Amazon site.

    On the link to the models, click on "View Image Gallery" to access all the models.

    Enjoy!

    Sounds interesting Barn

    If she'd wanted a change from Forensics there are a few Model Villages that would have taken her on
