Vintage Scene of Crime Photos

Sydney, Australia’s Justice & Police Museum has an amazing collection of vintage photos, some of which we’ve featured in our mugshot posts. I love their collection because it’s an un-sanitized look at the past, and a free glimpse into scenes that are now tightly controlled by authorities. Today I’ve put together a more gorey gallery for your enjoyment – scene of crime photos where the main subject is a corpse. Whether by natural causes or murder, these were the first photos taken when police were called to the scene. This was the first official, visual documentation of each person’s death, a moment of the utmost importance. The soul has departed, but the shell remains, and the people left behind are left looking for reasons. Check out this morbid collection below…
