Patricia Cornwell traveled to Oak Ridge to promote her new Kay Scarpetta novel, “Red Mist.” It wasn’t for a book signing but for a television appearance. Cornwell’s interview with Terry Moran aired Tuesday on “Good Morning America” and “Nightline.”
Most of the interview took place at the National Forensic Academy, which now houses the bulk of Cornwell’s collection of crime memorabilia. She splattered some real human blood with a baseball bat and a hammer. My son and I got to study blood drops in the same room last year. Cornwell also took Moran on a helicopter flight over the Body Farm, as she revealed on Twitter last week.
