He said the night before, the two of them had shared a quiet evening at home in Redondo Beach, enjoying some wine and cheese before she headed out to the mall to pick up a few Christmas presents. She never came home. The police check with family and friends and quickly realize that Madolyn Smink is not a woman who would simply disappear on her own accord.

Over time it became an invaluable study aid for the natural scientist and a popular hobby for hunters and fishermen. Join us for a tantalizing look at the history of taxidermy, the craft of preserving animal skins and using them to recreate a still life of the animal as it appeared in life. We also check out fiberglass reproduction, which is gaining popularity as fish and game regulations become stricter. Finally, we examine human subjects in taxidermy. Using the very latest process of plastination, the once taboo science and art of preserving and displaying human corpses now draws crowds in Europe, Asia, and the U.S., proving the age-old practice continues to mesmerize us!
