Boston University Forensic Sciences study- participants needed

by Press Release
September 19, 2017

My name is Mary Studebaker-Reed and I am a current student in Boston University’s Forensic Anthropology Master’s program. Together with Fmr. FBI Agent Gary Reinecke and Dr. Peter Cummings, I am conducting my thesis research on outdoor crime scene searches and the recovery of human remains. For my study, I am looking for volunteers from varied backgrounds and experience levels, to include civilian volunteers. .

Volunteer participation in the study will entail spending approximately 4-6 hours at Boston University’s Outdoor Research Facility in Holliston, MA. Over the course of the day, participants will spend a few hours walking around outdoors, so please consider this factor prior to volunteering.

As part of the study, participants will receive a workshop style training session regarding outdoor crime scene searches and human remains recovery. This training is informational, and does not qualify participants to perform outdoor crime scene searches or handle human remains in forensic or any other contexts. The purpose of the training is purely informational.

At the end of the study session, you will receive a brief questionnaire about your experience. There is no monetary compensation available for this study, but refreshments will be provided.

The study date for the civilian group will be in September. If you are interested in taking part in this study, please contact me at mstudeb2@bu.edu,
