Cadavers help police solve crimes? Absolutely. At the University of Tennessee's Forensic Anthropology Center, a.k.a. the Body Farm, cadavers are left to rot under various environmental conditions so scientists can learn just how bodies decompose - and how long it takes them to decompose. Forensic scientists use the data to better locate and recover human remains - and solve crimes. istockphoto

(CBS/AP) LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Authorities in northeast Arkansas said Friday that four people are in custody after two 18-year-olds were found dead within a week at the same home.

Paragould Police Cpl. Brad Snyder tells The Associated Press that the stabbed body of Nicholas Zurosky was found Sunday. Zurosky was a suspect in the death of Lisa Steele, who Greene County coroner Dick Pace said was found shot to death in the same home on July 6.

One of the people in custody is a juvenile being held on a capital murder charge. The other three were arrested on hindering apprehension charges.

Authorities aren't saying whether Zurosky's death is related Steele's, and the relationship between the two teens wasn't immediately clear.
