Guess these students got more than they bargained for

The headline pretty much says it all, as does the opening paragraph:

FORT LAUDERDALE – Truth proved to be stranger than fiction for a

high school criminology class investigating a fake crime scene after

students discovered a real body on a field trip.

Teacher Sue Messenger has been planting fake skeletons with

bullet holes and other evidence at mock crime scenes for more than 20

years during her forensics courses to give her students a

firsthand look at what crime scene investigators do.

“I think they kind of went into shock and disbelief, but

also, you have to say it’s completely bizarre,” Messenger said. “I

mean … what are the odds that we would be out here?”

The man was identified as 45 year old David Wayne Bodie, a homeless man who apparently died of natural causes.
