Clarksville, Ark. --- Dr. Gary Telgenhoff, a forensic pathologist who does consulting work for the hit television show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, will speak at University of the Ozarks on Monday, Sept. 19, to kick off the university's 2005-2006 Walton Arts & Ideas Series.

Telgenhoff will speak at 7 p.m. in the Walton Fine Arts Center on the Clarksville campus. Tickets are $10 each.
Telgnehoff, who is the deputy medical examiner for Las Vegas, will have a multi-media presentation that shows how he uses scientific tools to solve criminal and medical mysteries.
