Forensic Experts to Expose the Realities of Crime Scene Investigation at “Eastern Edge: CSI Spokane”

But, what do forensic scientists actually do? What kinds of careers are out there for them? Eastern Washington University, in partnership with the Spokane Area Economic Development Council, will present “Eastern Edge: CSI Spokane” at the Ridpath Hotel, W. 515 Sprague Avenue, Spokane.

The event will feature Sarah Keller, Ph.D., EWU professor of anthropology and consultant to detectives throughout the Inland Northwest, and Peter Bilous, Ph.D., EWU professor of forensic science.

Keller will provide a behind-the-scenes look at investigation – focusing on her specialty of examining bone material and drawing from more than 30 years of experience investigating forensic cases. Bilous will draw from his biochemistry background to discuss the lab side of forensics, Eastern’s forensic science program and the benefits of the newly opened Washington State Patrol Regional Crime Lab on Eastern’s campus.

Cost is $10 per person. Open to the public. RSVP by Tue., May 17, by calling (509) 235-5034 or online at www.ewu.edu/easternedge. No refunds or cancellations after Fri., May 20.
