Dead men tell no tales... but their bodies do. Clark County Coroner Mike Murphy steps out of the morgue and into our studios to talk about the tricks of the trade - like how to rehydrate a dried corpse. Also, how many people die by gunshots or suicides? How does he handle a celebrity's death? And with 100,000 adults reported missing each year, what happens when an unidentified body appears? Part of Murphy's job includes informing families their loved one is dead. What toll does the job take on him? Tune in, as we dig deep with the county coroner.

Guest:
Michael Murphy, Clark County Coroner
