SHERIDAN — The Wyoming Forensic Conference, held every two years by local coroners, is now available for law enforcement to attend. The conference runs May 23 starting at 10 a.m. and ends May 25 at 5:15 p.m.

Topics to be discussed include suspecting child abuse, investigation concerns, evidence preservation, gunshot and incised wounds, Wyoming Game and Fish forensic laboratory, blood spatter and DNA, deaths in custody and postmortem toxicology practices and pitfalls.

The conference initially helped coroners and forensic pathologists around the state log required training hours, but local coroners recognized the need for team collaboration among agencies. A crime scene involves several first-responding entities, so the organization team out of Sheridan opened registration up to other first responders. Spots remain available for the conference, and anyone interested in participating should call the Sheridan County coroner’s office at 307-763-5837.
