Crime scene cleaning: Not a job for the faint-hearted

|     Goeran Gehlen     |

KASSEL, Germany (dpa) – There’s a distinct smell of death, and maggots are already crawling out from underneath the door. This is the kind of scene Sinisa Matokovic and his colleagues can face on any given day.

They are crime scene cleaners, venturing where few others will dare after the police have finished their work, and their services are much in demand in the German city of Kassel, where they are based. For property owners, they are a godsend, since many homes would be uninhabitable without their work.

Matokovic enjoys his job. “It’s full of variety,” says the 40-year-old. Carrying out the work is a question of mind over matter, he adds.

The company he works for, Tohr, employs a director of operations and five cleaners. Manager Dominik Kracheletz, a qualified funeral director, says the impetus for the business came from the customers. Whenever the undertaker came to collect

Men deny evidence tampering in bloody crime scene from late June

A Billings man is denying charges he removed bloody clothing and a garbage dumpster from a crime scene in late June.

Michael Scott Leclair, 35, is facing two felony counts of tampering with evidence related to an assault at a Heights home on June 28.

Investigators believe Leclair moved the bloody clothing and garbage dumpster “to an unknown location” to prevent police from finding them.

Detectives searching the scene at the Heights home discovered the area had been cleaned recently, but some blood stains remained on the staircase, baseboard and a speaker box.

Leclair has posted $50,000 bond and is on GPS monitoring.

Another man, William James Hoffert III, has been charged with evidence tampering in what appears to be the same case.

Hoffert appeared in court Thursday via video from the Yellowstone County jail and pleaded not guilty to two felony counts of evidence tampering and one felony count of criminal endangerment for a road

Shocking moment mum had to lead her blindfolded kids through horrific crime scene outside her front door when it …

THIS is the bloody scene which faced a mum and her three young children as they stepped outside their front door 32 hours after a man severed an artery.

She filmed the horrific sight of blood spattered on the stairwell and pooled on the floor in the corridor after she had to blindfold her children while walking through it.

Blood can be seen covering the floor outside a flat door, where a mum had to lead her children through the horrific scene

Game review: Serial Cleaner – crime-scene clean-up concept is great, but like all bad stealth games, it’s repetitive

Serial Cleaner

Curve Digital

3/5 stars

A great idea can be sometimes easy to come by. Great execution, on the other hand, can often be a little harder. You probably know people who believe their genius plans are going to take the world by storm, but in fact their ideas rarely bear fruit.

Game review: escape a communist hellhole in Black the Fall

Serial Cleaner (available for PC and PS4) probably should not have gone further than a late night light-bulb moment. In the game you are a professional cleaner – one of those guys in hitman movies who do the dirty work once all the killing’s done. The crime scene clean-up concept’s great, but it sounds better than it actually is.

The gameplay is classic stealth, following the old school Metal Gear Solid formula of evading the fuzz while hiding dead bodies. On those rare occasions that it works well, Serial Cleaner stands

Crime Scene Camp Inspires Teens to Pursue Forensics

What looked like a Hollywood set on Rockdale Road in West Haven Friday was a staged, yet realistic, crime scene created for 35 teens.

The high school students from across the country put their skills to the test after learning advanced techniques all week at Crime Scene Investigation Camp at the University of New Haven.

Program director Peter Massey and his staff transformed the Rockdale Road house, which is owned by the university, into a bloody crime scene, scattered with fake drugs, blood splatter evidence and cotton mannequin bodies.

“It’s a lot more intense when you’re doing this here because you have to take everything that you were taught and everything that you’ve learned, and apply it,” Jacob Bladd, of Middletown, said.

Massey emphasized the importance of training his students in a simulated situation and “in the correct, right way.”

“Again, we don’t want to do shortcuts.
