Criminal biologist Mark Benecke
himself has developed a procedure for the presentation of genetic fingerprints, examined numerous sexual offenses with it, built up DNA labs and reported from his own view of the world of the tracks, which is very different and much more exciting than in the cinema.

Criminal biologist DR. MARK BENECKE devotes himself in a bizarre and sometimes disgusting way to exciting questions that sometimes one would rather not have answered: Why are, for example, the fingernails of the bloated man's corpse so long and which type of creep crawls out of the corner of her mouth? Thus, not death is BENKE's job, but life after death. When the maggots expose the killer, he did everything right ... Follow him into a shocking and fascinating world.

By BENECKES analysis of various insects that were found on corpses, countless criminals worldwide has been able to stop the craft. However, the viewer can easily turn around at the sight of some photos ever the stomach. For it is not the usual pictures that are shown, but pictures of heavily disfigured corpses. Only through detailed close-ups, the really interesting questions can be clarified.

The Cologne crime biologist was trained by the FBI and operates internationally. BENECKE has built specialized laboratories in Colombia, Vietnam and the Philippines. Numerous radio and TV appearances testify to the public's great interest in his work.

Here, the audience now gets an insight into the work of one of the world's best-known and most successful criminal biologists...
