are sponsoring a two day course in "Death Scene Investigation: A Forensic 
Entomology and Anthropology Field Training Workshop," to take place at the 
Jasper County Fair Grounds in Rensselaer, Indiana, May 28 & 29, 1997.  This 
workshop is specifically designed for death scene investigators, crime scene

on recognizing entomological and anthropological evidence at the crime scene

morning lectures and hands on field training during the afternoons.  The 
workshop will begin at 8:00 am on Wednesday, May 28 and will end at 5:00 pm 
on May 29.  It has been certified by the Indiana Law Enforcement Training 
Board for 14 Continuing Education Credits.  A fee of $255 includes all 
materials and an evening hog roast on Wednesday. Scheduled presenters 
include Neal H. Haskell, PhD, BCE (forensic entomology); Stephen P. 
Nawrocki, PhD, DABFA (forensic anthropology); Matthew A. Williamson, MA
