In a timeline from 2006 to 2020, “Forensic Crisis” by Quinto Elemento Lab tells a visual story of the impact of the accelerating number of unidentified bodies in Mexican morgues. The site presents data from state authorities on the bodies sent to communal graves, improperly incinerated, donated to medical schools, and lost by public institutions. This crisis further exacerbates investigations into disappearances by the state or organized crime. The investigative journalists at grantee Quinto Elemento are quantifying the crisis and advocating for solutions to provide truth, justice, and reparations.
