Vol related (not sports)...the Body Farm

Recommended Posts

Pretty interesting article on UT's famed "Body Farm".




Every day, the red phone rings at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Forensic Anthropology Center. Either Dawnie Steadman or Mary Davis, who share phone duties, answers. On the other end, a funeral home director, a police officer, or a family member shares with them some version of the same message: There’s a body here for you.


“That’s our death notification,” said Steadman, the FAC’s director. “That starts the process.”
