Forensic expert to lecture at Albany State University

January 16, 2007

Albany -- An expert in mapping war dead and human remains will be a guest lecturer at Albany State University this winter.

Dr. Stephanie Spars of the University of South Dakota spoke to A.S.U.'s Forensic Science studies this morning. Dr. Spars is well known for studying regions where war or genocide occurred, determining how many people were killed there, how and why.

Spars says this forensic field is growing, because of it's importance to survivors.

Spars said "closure. It helps them resolve issues. And I also think in other circumstances it brings the proper individuals accountable for what's happened."

Dr. Spars will conduct lectures and workshops for Albany State's forensic science and criminal justice department through June.
