Due to concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to cancel our 2020 Spring Educational Conference. We look forward to hosting the same speakers and topics for our 2021 Spring Educational Conference.

2019 Spring Educational Conference

The 2019 Spring Educational Conference was held on April 9-10 at the Geary County Convention Center/Courtyard by Marriott in Junction City, KS.

The conference title was "The Application of Forensic Science in a Quadruple Homicide Investigation", where focus was put on several forensic science disciplines and applications that were utilized to aid in the investigation of a quadruple homicide that took place in Franklin County, Kansas.

Lectures included presentations on Forensic Anthropology, 3D Laser Scanning Documentation, Soil Analysis, Entomology, and Bloodstain Pattern Analysis. There were also presentations on the crime scenes involved, the investigation, and a case wrap-up provided by several of the attorneys assigned to prosecute the case.
