FOX19 - Jurors could soon be put inside the crime scene they are debating on.

Researchers from the UK are looking to use virtual reality technology to recreate crime scenes.

By recording all the evidence in detail through drones, laser scanners, and advanced photography, officials believe they can piece it together into a virtual reality scene.

Then everyone on the jury would put on headsets and watch that re-creation to help them determine if the suspect is guilty.

There is no timetable on when the technology would be available.
