Imagine a single location -- in real life, not on TV or in a novel -- where murders are commonplace and crime is rampant. This is CMU’s Crime Scene House. Luckily for the City of Grand Junction, the crimes are all staged for the training of future criminal investigators and current law enforcement.

The bungalow-style house features two floors, including two living areas, two bathrooms, two bedrooms, and a “bonus” room set up as a study. This allows multiple scenes to be set up at one time, so class teams can progress through, processing their own “scene” before joining together for discussion.
