A ”body farm”: It sounds like something from a horror movie or murder mystery.
At WCU, it’s an innovative learning opportunity for forensic anthropology students. The decomposition research station—irreverently referred to as a "body farm"—is a living lab where students and researchers can get a close-up, long-term look at what happens when a human body decomposes. It’s also pretty unique: WCU’s “body farm” is only the second facility of its kind nationwide.
