Product Description
CSI HAS TOLD YOU LIES is a surprisingly moving account of the real forensic pathologists at the frontline of Australia's major crime and disaster investigations. These are the men and women whose post-mortem examinations help the dead to speak. Along with the pathologists, Meshel Laurie, host of the Australian True Crime podcast also speaks to the homicide detectives, defence barristers and victim's families in this ground-breaking study of the ripple-effect of violent crime and largescale natural disaster.
Included in this extraordinary list of investigators are the team that convicted serial killer Peter Dupas, the man who travelled to the Netherlands as part of the victim identification team after MH17 was shot down over Ukraine. Mo, Evie and Otis Maslin's parents Marite and Anthony have also spoken to Meshel, after learning for the first time about the recovery operation.
The incredible story of the identification of over 5000 victims of the 2004 tsunami is told by a specialist who spent 12 months flying in and out of Thailand. For the first 2 weeks of the operation, there was no refrigeration. The same man went on to lead the victim recovery after the Black Saturday bush fires.
