    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Some high school criminology students in Fort Lauderdale got a taste of the real thing Monday morning. Their teacher had set up a mock crime scene at Holiday Park for their class. The students were supposed to bag evidence, take pictures of the scene and try to solve the fake crime.



    The students from St. Thomas Aquinas High School soon discovered a man's body and began taking notes and pictures as they were taught. But at the time, they didn't know it was a real dead person. One student even said he thought his teacher "planted it there."



    Once they realized it was the real deal, they notified their teacher and the police.



    It's unclear how the man died, but the students believe it was a homeless man who likely died of natural causes. He was found laying on a cardboard bed and there were no obvious signs of trauma.

    A guy I knew found a drug addict that must have OD'd in a park when we were in high school. The deceased was 22 but he was so bloated and disfigured by the elements that he was nearly unrecognizable. It haunted the poor fellow who found him.

    Those poor kids. Can you imagine them, bagging "evidence" and taking notes? How could they think that the teacher put the body there for them? What are we doing to kids these days, that they would believe a teacher would "plant" a body there for them?

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Truth proved to be stranger than fiction for a high school criminology class investigating a fake crime scene after students discovered a real body on a field trip.

    Teacher Sue Messenger has been planting fake skeletons with bullet holes and other evidence at mock crime scenes for more than 20 years to give her students a firsthand look at what crime scene investigators do.
