Crime Scene, a forensic store in Phoenix, is your one stop shop for all things murder from body bags to finger printing kits. 

Tom Arriola founded Crime Scene nearly 20 years ago. Back in the day, the site was a library of fictional murder cases users could solve. Tom’s business grew as the internet grew. When ecommerce was introduced in 1994, Tom jumped on the bandwagon. Body bags were the first forensic science items sold on his site.

These days Tom has a storefront in Phoenix where he sells body bags, fingerprinting kits, sperm tests and more. His clientele includes professionals like the Phoenix Police Department but also regular people who are just fascinated by murder. 

One of Crime Scene’s most popular items is “murder in a box.” It’s actual name is “Crime Scene Forensic Science Kit: The Missy Hammond Case.” The kit includes everything you need to solve a fictional murder from finger printing to blood testing. It costs $60 and is available for purchase in store and on Amazon
