#43: Digging Up Bodies

Dr. Erin Kimmerle digs up bodies. She's carefully picked through mass graves in Kosovo and Croatia to identify victims of war crimes. She did the same thing in Peru, where men, women, and children were executed by the military forty years ago. She dug up the bones of young boys murdered at a Florida reform school. And this summer, she came to Philadelphia, to dig up bodies.

Kristen Johanson (@KristenJohanson) joins the podcast today to talk about how forensic anthropology hopes to solve decades old cold cases, even when the victims are unidentified.
