Death Scene Dioramas of the NUTSHELL STUDIES – WildTravelsTV.com


THIS IS THE NUTSHELL STUDIES
OF UNEXPLAINED DEATH. THE PURPOSE OF
A DEATH INVESTIGATION BEING TO CONVICT
THE GUILTY, TO CLEAR
THE INNOCENT, AND TO FIND THE TRUTH
IN A NUTSHELL. THEY’RE ALL BASED ON
ACTUAL DEATH SCENES, ACTUAL CASES. THEY’RE NOT ALL HOMICIDES. THEY DO INCLUDE SOME
ACCIDENTS, SUICIDES, NATURAL CAUSES,
UNDETERMINED. THEY’RE BASICALLY
A THOUGHT EXERCISE. THEY’RE REALLY NOT
WHODUNITS TO BE SOLVED, BUT THEY’RE AN EXERCISE
IN OBSERVING INDIRECT EVIDENCE AND TRYING TO TEASE OUT
INFORMATION FROM WHAT LITTLE
YOU’RE GIVEN. THE MODELS OF
THE DIORAMAS THEMSELVES, THEY’RE SO FULL OF DETAIL
THAT YOU’RE FORCED TO STOP, AND THINK, AND LOOK,
AND REALLY THINK THINGS THROUGH
‘CAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE SUPPOSED
TO BE LOOKING AT. THESE WERE CREATED
BY FRANCES GLESSNER LEE, WHO WAS A SOCIALITE
FROM CHICAGO, WHO USED HER FORTUNE
TO ELEVATE THE PROFESSION OF HOMICIDE DETECTIVES
AND REALLY MADE THAT INVESTIGATION
A SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINE. FRANCES IS
THE MOTHER OF CSI. SHE GAINED AN INTEREST
IN DEATH INVESTIGATION IN THE 1930s. AT THE TIME, A LOT OF PEOPLE
WERE GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER BECAUSE THERE
WERE NO STANDARDS FOR DEATH INVESTIGATION. THINGS WERE INCONSISTENT
FROM PLACE TO PLACE, AND SHE WAS, UH,
REGARDED AS THE PREEMINENT CRIMINOLOGIST
OF HER– OF HER ERA. SHE HAD AN AMAZINGLY
SKILLED HAND, UH, IN TERMS OF
THE-THE FIGURINES, THE WAY THAT
THEY’RE FINISHED, AND THE– AND
THE FABRIC, AND-AND, UM, UH, IT’S JUST–
THE LEVEL OF DETAIL IS JUST TOTALLY
MIND BLOWING. I DESCRIBE THESE AS 1930s
VIRTUAL REALITY ‘CAUSE THEY ARE. EACH DIORAMA IS A MOMENT
FROZEN IN TIME, WHERE SOMETHING HAPPENED,
AND IT’S A STILL FRAME. YOU, AS THE OFFICER,
ARE DISPATCHED TO THE SCENE WITH VERY SKETCHY
INFORMATION, WHICH IS LISTED IN THE FRONT
OF THE CABINET. WHEN THESE ARE ASSIGNED
TO THE POLICE OFFICERS FOR THE HOMICIDE SEMINAR,
THEY TAKE IT VERY SERIOUSLY. THEY SPEND A LOT OF TIME,
AND THEY’LL SPEND A COUPLE HOURS JUST LOOKING
AT THIS LITTLE SCENE, JUST A-A-AS THEY WOULD
AT A REAL CRIME SCENE. WELL THE SOLUTIONS
ARE KEPT SECRET. UM, THERE-THERE IS ONE
PERSON IN THE BUILDING WHO HAS THE-THE ANSWERS,
AND, UH, THEY’RE KEPT UNDER LOCK AND KEY.
AND DO YOU KNOW THE ANSWERS? I KNOW THE ANSWERS
TO MANY OF THEM. UM, IF I GAVE THEM UP,
I WOULD BE– I WOULD–
I WOULD BE BEATEN. I THINK I WOULD BE
BADLY HURT IF I DID THAT.
