Western Carolina University's New Body Farm.

Western Carolina University plans to open a "body farm," only the second in the US:

The 6.5-horsepower wood chipper sitting in the middle of John Williams' forensic anthropology lab run is no macabre joke. Yes, a wood chipper did figure in the bloody climax of the 1996 film "Fargo." And yes, the professor at Western Carolina University has run human bones through this particular Briggs & Stratton model.

But Williams, of course, isn't trying to dispose of any dead bodies. Rather, he's a student of how the human body decomposes.
