CSI San Bernardino: Insects at the Scene of the Crime

On Wednesday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m., the San Bernardino County Museum will present a guest lecture series titled “CSI San Bernardino: Insects at the Scene of the Crime.”  This presentation by David Van Norman is free to the public.

Forensic entomology is the study and use of insects at the scene of a crime. It is not a new investigative resource, but it is increasingly becoming a tool of the forensic investigator. Unwanted pests to most, insects provide information to the trained analyst that is otherwise unknowable.

David Van Norman is a Supervising Deputy Coroner Investigator with the San Bernardino County Sheriff Department, Coroner Division. He has been with the Coroner Department for almost 14 years, and has investigated over 5,000 deaths. As the Coroner Department’s Unidentified Persons Coordinator, he supervises some of the complex investigations involving scattered skeletal remains and buried body cases.

This program is part of a series of guest lectures offered at no charge by the county museum. Upcoming guest lectures include Joyce Hanson on “Voices of San Bernardino” on May 24, and Susan Hough on “Earthquake Country” on June 28.

The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. Parking is free. For more information, visit
