Challenges with Homicides
The devil is in the details.Invigorated by thrilling television shows such as How to Get Away with Murder and Dexter, some people believe they can concoct the perfect plan to conceal a murder. Throughout this season, we've asked our audience to send us their ideas of ways to hide a homicide. Listen as our doctors examine and evaluate the most popular submissions on the basis of plausibility, materials needed, ease or difficulty of execution, and the autopsy findings. Find out why a thorough medicolegal death investigation makes it very difficult to get away with murder.As a bonus, we invite Allison Arnold, a senior trial attorney with the Monroe County Prosecutor's Office, on the show. She will help us better understand the corpus delicti rule, or "body of the crime", and how it pertains to prosecutions where no dead body can be examined.
