Dr. William Bass is a legend in the field of forensic anthropology, having established the very first "Body Farm," in Knoxville Tennessee in 1971. The Body Farm is a piece of woodland acreage dedicated to the study of human decomposition. At any given time there are about one hundred bodies decaying in a variety of circumstances on the property, including under water in car trunks and in shallow graves. Bodies are also subjected to various weather conditions. Scientists accumulate information about how bodies are affected by these factors, and about time of death as well. Dr. Bass has solved countless complicated cases over the years and is one of the few people to have ever examined the remains of the Lindbergh baby. Drdrew.com
