Australia gets new facility to study decomposing bodies

20 November 2014
For the first time, Australian forensic scientists are getting their own research facility to study decomposing human bodies.
 
It will be the first of its kind outside the United States.
 
Until now, researchers have had to use data from America, where so-called 'body farms' have been used for decades.
 
Forensics experts say they'll now be able to conduct vital research to help with police investigations.
