When decomposed bodies are found in Ohio’s Montgomery County, they wind up at the Miami Valley Regional Crime Lab for autopsy. And for years, occupants of the three - story facility knew whenever a new body arrived because the strong smell of the rotting corpses would permeate the building. Despite spending hundreds of thousands of dollars over a period of years trying to solve the problem, nothing seemed to work. Replacing the HVAC system didn’t work. Nor did installing high - efficiency fans, adding an exhaust system incinerator, insulating the walls or any other strategy used so far.
