About our speaker: At the ME’s office, Christman oversees pathology, investigations and administration. He came to the office in September from the Bothell Police Department, and before that, he spent fifteen years working for several Medical Examiner/Coroner offices as a Medicolegal Death Scene Investigator. In his career, Christman attended more than 4,500 death scene investigations, and has been invited to provide independent expert testimony in several hundred other cases outside his jurisdiction. Christman has written and taught for the law enforcement community since 1988. In 1998, he became an adjunct instructor of Criminal Investigations at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission in Burien. There, he teaches other law enforcement professionals the art and science behind crime scene investigations and reconstructions.
