Murder in a nutshell

I came across an article on local news site this morning that spoke of something Iā€™d never heard of ā€“ the Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death

Fascinating ā€“ that a lady in America in the 1940s, Frances Glessner Lee made dioramas of murder scenes to assist in the training of homicide investigators.

The level of detail is extraordinary. More detail and pictures can be found at the Smithsonian American Art Museum site.
