From the Office of the Medical Examiner
Medical examiners sometimes get a bum rap. Their life is not always about plucking the innards from every Tom, Dick, and Harry they meet. M.E.s and coroners play a huge role in solving homicides, and many times they alone do the crime-solving. They’re also responsible for protecting the most valuable piece of evidence in a murder case – the body. Here are a few items used in that process:
Tamper-proof body bag seal (What goes in a body bag, stays in a body bag).
Toe tag (Don’t want to mix up the bodies. Sometimes it’s quite crowded in those cold rooms).
Big Girtha (extra large) body bag w/10 handles and 2 zippers (For those victims who never made that call to Jenny Craig).
Tyvek boot covers – w/PVC bottoms for traction
Evidence drying cabinet
And for that someone special who has everything…
Dead Men Talk (on front) CSIs Listen (on back) T-shirt
Sally Slugger skeleton
Homer Runner skeleton
Crime scene bumper sticker
And for undercover work…
Crime scene boxer shorts
where did you get that cool version of Operation?
Excellent, it will be nice to compare differences at a later stage. Sally Slugger……..I think I’m in love. Can I borrow her and she can sit in the corner of my Office.

Real cute! Has everyone read the toe tag story that Detective Hussey wrote. I put it on my blog last Friday, Feb. 20th. Homicide – Hussey – The Policy Makers. I don’t know if links work here. http://terryodell.blogspot.com/2009/02/homicide-hussey-policy-makers.html
