The facility is the brain child of Shari Forbes. She doesn’t like to boast about her work. Forbes is a forensic expert in thanatology, which is the study of death. Her work includes studying human bodies that are decomposing and examining the pattern in which insects eat the flesh of dead bodies, and whether they lay their eggs in a certain pattern.

As a forensic expert in thanatology, the study of death, she spends her days focused on decomposing human bodies — examining how insects eat flesh, when they lay their eggs, and even how cadaver dogs pick up a corpse’s odour.

“I’ve certainly learned to have a strong stomach,” she told As It Happens host Carol Off. “It’s required in this kind of research.”

Forbes is helping establish Canada’s first forensics body farm, an outdoor facility where human bodies are left to decay and scientists study the process. It will open this summer in Bécancour, near Trois-Rivières, Que.

The research done there will help forensic investigations Canada scientists understand decomposition, and will ultimately help investigators better determine time of death in homicide investigations.
