"In Tales from the Morgue, Dr. Cyril Wecht, one of the most sought-after forensic pathologists in the world, shares his insights and scientific expertise on nine cases that he has officially investigated - high-profile cases as well as other lesser-known but highly intriguing mysteries. For the Scott Peterson case, Dr. Wecht became intimately involved: carefully studying the remains of Laci and Connor Peterson in his dogged search for clues. In addition to recounting this sad story, he provides his detailed assessment of the evidence in the case as well as his view of the jury's verdict. For the Chandra Levy case, Dr. Wecht not only examined her remains but also visited the very remote and isolated scene of the tragic homicide. Moreover, he meticulously assesses the evidence concerning Rep. Gary Condit's alleged role in this case." "Dr. Wecht takes the reader inside some of the nation's most bizarre and intriguing medico-legal investigations and shows how forensic scientists help to solve crimes - and why they sometimes fail in their efforts. His vast experience and his willingness to take on the establishment if necessary and provide proof that runs counter to popular opinion make this book a page-turner."--Jacket
