On June 18, sponsors Bays Mountain Park and Kingsport Idol bring you “An Evening with Dr. Bill Bass.” Experience an event like no other as you hear from one of the most interesting scientists working today.
“Dr. Bass is a forensic legend, and we are thrilled to host him at Bays Mountain Park,” said Mark Kilgore, program coordinator at Bays Mountain. “He is beloved in East Tennessee, and we are lucky to have him share his knowledge and experiences with our community.”
Dr. Bass is known for pioneering and advancing the study of human remains in order to assist law enforcement, as well as being the founder of “The Body Farm” at the University of Tennessee. Best known for his research on human osteology and human decomposition, Dr. Bass has been the front-runner in the field of forensics for quite some time.
Dr. Bass has worked throughout the United States and worldwide to help solve some of the world’s most famous crimes. The CSI television show has even based some of their storylines upon Dr. Bass’s research. Now retired, he continues to share his knowledge through speaking events.
As a co-author, Bass is famous for his collaboration with writer and documentary filmmaker Jon Jefferson. Beginning with a film for National Geographic about the Body Farm, the duo has written two nonfiction books and 12 bestselling fiction novels under the name Jefferson Bass. Dr. Bass’s books will be available for purchase after the event.
