I am a major NCSI fanatic and I probably haven’t missed many of their shows since they first aired in 2003. My favorite characters are Mark Harmon (Gibbs), Pauley Perrette (Abby Sciuto) and Cote de Pablo (Ziva David). The roles they play suit them and they are good at it.
After watching an episode the other night of a homicide case and I got to thinking. Ok I know this is just a TV series, but things like this happen in real life. Most of my readers know me by now, my little brain gets going a million miles a minute sometimes and I end up consulting with my buddy Google for answers.
Anyways in this episode a guy was found murdered in his kitchen, (if you watch NCIS you’ll know they don’t do gory gross scenes) but we all know that it’s probably pretty messy. So I got to thinking about another show I watch True Blood on HBO (since it’s HBO the scenes are gross and gory) They always show Sookie on her hands and knees cleaning up the messes.
I kept wondering who cleans up the real life homicide crime scenes? Maid services? A cleaning company? A special professional company? In my weird demented need I kind of wanted to know. I was pretty shocked at the results, did you know that there’s actually a professional term for this? It’s called Homicide Incident Sanitizing and it’s done by science and engineering consultants. I should have known this from my years working with engineers, we had several biochemical related projects.
It’s always nice to fulfill my need to know.. sorry for the ever so random post .. Do you have a favorite crime investigation series? Did you know how real life crime scenes are cleaned up?
