I used to work on a ambulance for several years. Used to see this stuff every day. The worst are usually MC accidents. The worst when a male jumped in front of a Semi trailer truck, 65 mph and committed suicide.

When I was a kid I had a very bad motorcycle accident with a car. Almost lost my leg. Happened on Christmas eve. The ambulance driver told his girlfriend how he felt bad for this poor kid who was probably going to lose his leg on Christmas Eve. I heard this from the girlfriend a few months later. Ended up I knew her. Didn't lose me leg either. :D

I did a pick up that a guy bought from a lady that her brother killed his self in....

Wasn't pretty, lady only had liability on car so Ins didn't pick up the tab for getting it cleaned... Needless to say I just yanked carpet and seat out and pressure washed the crap out it....

It was a 1969 Chevrolet so washing it out was a perfect fix....

I didn't take pics cause the lady was watching me the whole and I felt like it might offend her.

I would like to add that to my services...

I'm very sorry to hear that, Johnny. that must have been a super traumatic experience.

PS So for the rest of you IF you are going to do crime scenes and bio-hazard work it is ESSENTIAL to get serious, focused training. And don't do it if it is going to mess you up emotionally. Or make you hungry all the time so you gain 80#! :)

Not to worry Steve almost everything makes me hungry. Or at least crave soda. Reading TMF makes me hungry and thirsty but I keep coming back

Only crime scene I've done was easy. Two shots to the chest and he went down. The emt left the cloths and stuff. I cleaned the floor and rug. That blood was disgustingly thick.

I'm eating on my couch as I typed this..

It really wasnt that bad, but if there were flesh of the victim or the family there, I could see it be too hard to mess with.

This job was a friend if mine. Two thugs broke in to rob him and he fought back but didnt have a gun. He got shot twice and left for dead. His wife was tied up but luckily that's it. He now has a sweet gun tucked away by his bed.

He offered to let me borrow his car, but I don't need to get into anymore trouble..

I wouldn't want to do those type of cleanings. I know you make a good amount but its risky and horrible.
Probably send my helper, if i did those type of services.
Give you props for doing those cleanings
