At a time when women didn’t have any place among the police or law enforcement, and forensic science barely existed a elderly Chicago socialite named Mrs. Frances Glessner Lee became famous for her crime solving analytical skills, and taught an entire generation of cops how to search for clues…. using doll houses.The creator of 18 perfectly proportioned dioramas based on real-life crime scenes, these painstakingly crafted dioramas include functioning locks and lights and details such as overturned cups, bullet-holes, and boxes of chocolates as well as miniature corpses in a variety of macabre positions.
