del Barco Crime Scene!!!

Since I usually cover street gangs and police in Los Angeles, I decided to check out the National Museum of Crime and Punishment. I couldn't help but photograph a faux crime scene that I conjured from the exhibition. I even recruited a museum visitor who said she was a dancer in Las Vegas to pose as the pretend perpetrator of the murder!
