This course will explain the common process of a drowning death, how the body reacts to this process, and the most common forensic evidence observed in bodies pulled from the water. Learning from these lectures will help you gain a better understanding that not all victims found in water are a result of drowning. As a crime scene investigator, you will experience and be witness to many types of scenes--including water-related scenes. Taking this course can prepare you for what you may encounter related to a water-related scene and what evidence you may be required to collect and document.

The course will also review the challenges facing a forensic pathologist in determining a drowning diagnosis, which will help you understand why forensic evidence is so important in cases and what type of information you can get from evidence. Knowing the many challenges forensic pathologists face, you will have a better understanding of what pathologists need to do their job and as a result, you become a better and stronger team member.

Lectures include:

  • Expert testimony from a forensic expert who specializes in water-related deaths. She has testified in many cases including the Drew Peterson case. Read about it in lecture 16.

  • Includes downloadable material, A Guide for Manner of Death Classification. This is a 30-page guide that will help you understand how and why drowning deaths are classified.

  • Learn the importance of continued forensic training is included. Training is the #1 way you can set yourself apart from others competing for the same forensic position.


Benefits of Taking This Course

Knowledge. Case studies and scene pictures are reviewed so you will be able to reinforce the concepts introduced throughout earlier lectures. This results in you having a better appreciation of these unique scenes.

Experience. You want a forensic career but how do you get experience? Knowing different aspects of forensic investigations and circumstances increase your analytical skills needed in forensic science.

Terminology. As a forensic student working toward becoming a forensic professional, you need to know the forensic language. Understanding what you're reading--professional journal article or autopsy report--provides professional proof. You can speak the 'forensic talk'.

Certificate. After completing this course, make sure your print the certificate. This is another way to boost your credentials as a serious forensic student.

Although prior knowledge of medical terminology and the forensic investigation process is recommended, it is not required for this course because the terms will be explained and defined the terminology. Knowing these forensic terms increases your overall learning experience and increase your comprehension when reading case reports.

This course has over 10 supplemental materials that will reinforce the concepts introduced.
