Ep. 9 – CSI: Mi-Mummy

The dynamic trio discuss a paper that retraces the last few days in the life of a South American mummy. Raj does his best impression of Sherlock Holmes to figure out how the mummy was murdered, Jono is concerned about what scientists would learn about his life if he were mummified, and Joe is confused how something can be a mummy when it is not covered in toilet paper.

The paper: “Reconstructing the Life of an Unknown (ca. 500 Years- Old South American Inca) Mummy – Multidisciplinary Study of a Peruvian Inca Mummy Suggests Severe Chagas Disease and Ritual Homicide” by Panzer et al., PLoS ONE.
