On Friday 18th December 2021 human remains were found in a ditch in a track alongside farmland in Norfolk. The body has since been identified as that of Rachel Harris. Reported missing in mid November 2021 she was last seen near her home on CCTV at a petrol station in Battersea at 23.41 on 1st October 2021.
Police were alerted to a body as dog walkers spotted the remains. Rachels' body was found singed, highly decomposed and wrapped in a piece of carpet over 120 miles from her London home. Join us at The Post Mortem Live 2022 as we seek to explain the sequence of events that lead to the demise of Rachel and determine the pinnacle cause of death.
This is a live experience offering an insight into forensics and pathology which contains emotional triggers. New for 2022 we step into the sinister world of identifying a perpetrator as pathology and forensics collide in this totally unique, 5 star rated trust pilot reviewed experience.
Using real pathology lab equipment you will:
Analyse stages of decomposition to ascertain time of death conducting pathology observations and tests on detritus and insects including maggots and other species
Examine laceration markings and lividity patterns on Rachels body understand the sequence of events in the post-mortem interval
Analyse soil and rock samples for evidence identifying the movement of Rachels body
Piece together microscopic evidence from, hair, fibres and biological fluids to identify who was responsible for Rachels' death.
Conduct pathology dissection of organ specimens to reveal the pinnacle cause of death
