PLATTEVILLE, Wis. (WMTV)— The University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s seventh annual Horrific Crime Scene Revisited event will take place Saturday, Nov. 4 and Sunday, Nov. 5 at the Forensic Investigation Crime Scene House at Pioneer Farm.
With more than 250 attendees last year, this highly anticipated event provides UW-Platteville students, faculty, staff and community members the opportunity to explore the field of forensics without leaving Platteville.
“The scene we set up is always new and different,” said Kimberly Waite, forensic liaison for the UW-Platteville Criminal Justice Association. “Many students and community members are interested in either crime scene shows or actual crime scene processing techniques, so we draw quite the crowd.”
By recreating a famous homicide scene from the past, attendees assess a realistic crime scene set-up including mannequins posing as victims, walls splattered with artificial blood, rugs with temporary footprint impressions and more. Once
