We’ll take a special look at the growing role that forensic science is playing – in the investigation of crime. That role changed – forever – after the O. J. Simpson Murder Trial, in the 1990’s – and advancements in DNA testing, continue, twenty years later.

We’ll ask Michael Baden, M.D. – legendary forensic pathologist, former Chief Medical Examiner of New York City, and a member of the Simpson legal defense team – about the impact of these changes, on law enforcement.

Also with us, is Cyril H. Wecht, M.D., J.D. – former Allegheny County Coroner – and founder of the Cyril H. Wecht Institute of Forensic Science, at Duquesne University, in Pittsburgh.

The Institute held an important conference, at Duquesne – this past week – on forensic science, honoring the work of  Henry Lee, M.D., one of the world’s foremost forensic scientists, and another member of the Simpson defense group.
