Life as a real CSI - and you thought Entomology was useless

Ok, here it goes, since I've been nagged to death to post. and speaking of death, here is something that could fall into the category of the Thought for the Day. As it goes, a word of advise is that if you find that you are going to pass on while preparing to go fishing, leave the live bait behind. Such is the case of "Uncle Pete." By using forensic Entomology, as generalized in the above link, I estimated "Pete" had been preparing to go fishing, sitting in his car in a closed, detached garage for about 3 weeks.
The big question should be, "How do you know 'Pete' was going fishing?" the car, next to "Pete" sat a lunch box cooler. Along with food stuffs, was some containers of live shrimp bait. Naturally, after 3 weeks, the bait was less than live.
The next question should be, "Why leave the bait home if I'm going to die?" Well....there is the matter of bouquet. Three weeks for a former person is one thing, but for former aquatic life......I'll leave to the imagination.
