Hah, sad CSI addict that I am, that was my first thought too. I wonder if this was the inspiration.

Somewhere, a pathetic but talented individual, obsessed with Dare Wright fanpic, begins to construct a setting for the photoessay The Lonely Doll Takes an Icepick to the Chest.

I suppose it's ghoulish of me to want to build my own "crime scene" dollhouse now.

Amazing post. Thanks grapefruitmoon. What an extraordinary story about Frances Glessner Lee and her Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death. The photograph of her at work on her project seems right out of a home album belonging to Miss Marple, Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie, Hitchcock or somebody. Love that Visible Proofs site too.
