ST. LOUIS — Top death scene investigators from North America and Kosovo are meeting this week in St. Louis to improve their skills in the forensic sciences.

Saint Louis University School of Medicine is hosting the masters conference for those who investigate death scenes.

The meeting is the largest of its kind in North America. It gives scene investigators, forensic pathologists, scientists, coroners, emergency personnel and police an opportunity to learn the latest methods of documenting and interpreting crime scenes.

The course has been offered in St. Louis since 1985. More than 200 are attending.

Topics include pregnancy kidnappings, serial killers, cyber crimes, computer forensics and criminal profiling.
