How can maggots and slimy goo from decomposing bodies help solve crimes? Tessa and Barnaby visit forensic scientist Rachel Parkinson and her rotting pig carcasses. Rachel hopes that she will eventually be able to measure time-since-death using the bacteria which live in the slimy goo, and that she can give a helping hand to crime scene detectives in the high-tech world of forensics.
