Scattered Episode 01: Introduction & the Chandra Levy Case

This is an introduction to the podcast series. I address the question of why I’d make a podcast on scattered and scavenged remains.

  • Why knowing about scattered and scavenged remains is important
  • Why doing research on scattered and scavenged remains is important
  • How scattered and scavenged remains impact forensic cases, finding the missing person or deceased, and closing cases
  • I use the Chandra Levy case as an example to demonstrate an answer to all of this.

I reference the following in this episode:
