Newly published research using rotting pig carcasses could help investigators to one day pinpoint the location of missing human bodies located deep under water. Simon Fraser University criminologist Gail Anderson says her research shows pig bodies sunk hundreds of metres to the ocean floor off British Columbia's south coast quickly become covered with thick layers of tiny, scavenging sea lice. Anderson says the feeding frenzy likely produces noise and a measurable drop in oxygen levels. (Anderson says pigs are commonly used in forensic research because of their similarity to human beings as they're hairless, have similar gut bacteria and are about the same size as an adult human torso.)
