A Certain Kind Of Death

Unblinking and unsettling, this documentary lays bare a mysterious process that goes on all around us – what happens to people who die with no next of kin.

Dead bodies in various stages of decomposition are seen, but not played for shock factor. Instead, you learn a little about each person, both what they were before death and what will happen to them afterward. They are followed from the discovery of the body to the final disposition of the remains, and each step in between.

    A Mendocino resident and genealogist… Most impressed with this documentary, and it’s link to local cemetery. His internment documented here: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Tanner&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSst=6&GScnty=205&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=120563426&df=all
