This two-day course is designed for law enforcement homicide and death investigators, coroner/medical examiner investigators (medicolegal death investigators) and those in the child protection field. The instruction will comprehensively examine all aspects of responding to and investigating cases of child homicide and unexplained deaths of children. Topics include initial response to the death scene, determining cause and manner of death, interview and interrogation strategies, and victim and family issues.

The class will be presented by Robert Lowery. He was the fifth police official to be appointed as Commander of the elite 35-year Greater St. Louis Major Case Squad, a multi-jurisdictional violent crime task force concerned with high profile murder investigations in Missouri and Illinois. Robert formed partnerships with Federal Law Enforcement agencies, including the FBI, U.S. Marshal Service, ATF, Secret Service and IRS to maximize resources available for in-progress homicide cases. He created the Technical Operations Group, a specially trained team designed to provide electronic support in tracking and locating suspects. Robert also created the Family Liaison Program which provided specially trained investigators to work with families of victims of homicide cases. During his career, he investigated violent crimes with 500 law enforcement investigators from over 100 local, county, state, federal agencies and managed high-level murder cases in collaboration with officers from numerous agencies.
