If like me, you find it easy to assimilate information when it is presented visually, then I am sure you will find the following link (below in Bold) very interesting.  If you aren’t visually inclined, there is some text on it too that you will also find useful.  Many authors spend much thinking time figuring out how they are going to dispose of the bodies (fictionally speaking of course) and get away with murder.  The linked infographic depicts 10 Ways to Cover Up a Murder.  Just don’t try it in real life.  I won’t vouch for you at your trial.

The second item produced by the Metro, describes just What Happens to a Human Body After Death. BE WARNED – IT IS GRAPHIC but it gets the points across in an easily understandable way.  The points it alludes to may just come in handy when you have a body found in your stories.

For more information you may find useful, follow the links in the British Police and Crime Directory for Writers and Researchers.  You can also check out many more facts about policing in 218 Facts a Writer Needs to Know About the Police.
