Every once in a while I come across a topic so strange I can’t help but to research it. Crime scene poop is one of those things.

The first time I ever heard about criminals pooping at the scene of a crime was on the radio, maybe 10 years ago. A talk radio host talked about having her home broken into and then finding that the person who had done it had defecated in her closet. My curiosity was piqued.
