Underwater CSI: Isabella County
The Isabella County Sheriff's Department hosted a 6-day dive team training course this week outside Mount Pleasant. The department welcomed deputies from as far as Minnesota and Illinois to extend their training on underwater crime scene investigation. This morning was the culmination of the class with the students going through a complete mock murder situation involving a submerged car about 20 feet underwater. Organizers know the importance of this investigation in a lake-filled state like Michigan. The crew were able to recover fingerprints and footprints to solve the mock murder and cover up.
