You Can’t Spell "Corpse" without C-R-O-P

A professor at the University of Northern Iowa is trying to get a government grant to start a body farm. You know, where they bury human bodies and watch them decompose so CSI can more accurately depict the process and boost its ratings. It would be the second body farm in the U.S, the other being at the University of Tennessee’s Forensic Anthropology Center where for 30 years they’ve been watching bodies decay after burying them in shallow dirt graves, submerging them in a pond, and exposing them to bugs and rats. Kind of like Fear Factor for the dead. And they say small farms are dying off.
