How forensics finds human bodies: Dr. Arpad Vass at TEDxYYC

"I have dedicated the last quarter century of my life giving [those who have been murdered] a voice."

How do you tell the difference between human and animal bodies when they’re buried deep underground? Dr. Arpad Vass explains some of the complex chemistry behind forensics and, at the end of the talk, shares “The sound of death in the key of C.” (Filmed at TEDxYYC)
