The blood looked like it was coming out of Ms. Garcia's head and there was a table lying by her head as well. There were some pills and a syringe lying by Ms. Garcia´s stomach area. Additionally, there were tennis shoes with footprints on them and some white powder was found at the crime scene as well. The team then analyzed all of the evidence to figure out Ms.Garcia's manner and cause of death. The analysis of each evidence took the team one step closer to finding out how exactly Ms. Garcia
The popular television show, CSI: Crime Scene Investigations has been on the air for 12 years, and it has brought forth the behind-the-scenes actions of criminal investigations, even if its portrayals are not always scientifically accurate. This has caused an interest in the forensic sciences that has led most people to a skewed view of how a criminal investigation actually works. The reality of a criminal investigation is that it is generally more tedious and difficult than the theory of criminal investigation would have you believe. By examining the forensic and investigative procedures of the case of Pamela Foddrill, it is apparent that the theory of criminal investigation was not representative of the procedures concerning examination
Vanessa Vermont, a gorgeous woman found dead in her own kitchen, laying on the floor with a fatal head wound on the back of her head. Just recently she bought a new broiler and need and outlet over her kitchen counter, something her husband could do. And it is right where she was murdered. There is also a woman’s briefcase on the floor near the kitchen. Which means Mrs. Vermont was leaving, which in turn could’ve enraged the husband.
I think that that Customer C killed Fannin. The first piece of evidence that proves Customer C killed Fannin is that that the cash register had been rung up to 8.75 this is the exact total of Customers B, C, and D. This had to have been done before the murder, because the heel to toe footsteps that belonged to Ernie show that he walked to the cash register after mopping (footstep trail Y.) This was done before the robbery, because the only two reasons that he would’ve opened the register would be to either check someone out, or to give someone money during a stick up. We can tell that he wasn’t getting robbed, because the money’s still there.This allows us to rule out customer A. The second piece of
The purpose of this lab was to test different substances using various procedures to see what biomolecules were present and ultimately find out what restaurant Anna Lyza had eaten at before she died. For the first control test, we used vegetable oil to test for lipids. So, if the solution does not contain lipids, it does not become translucent when placed onto a paper bag square and held up to a light. So, it is a negative result. However, in the presence of lipids, the solution will become translucent when placed onto a paper bag square and held up to a light. Therefore in this case, the result is positive. On the other hand, we used albumin egg to test for proteins in another control test. If the solution does not contain proteins, it will not experience any color change and so it is a negative result. When there are proteins existing in the solution, it will turn bluish/purplish and for this reason it is a positive result. Furthermore in the third control test, we used dextrose to test for simple carbohydrates such as glucose. If the solution does not contain simple carbohydrates, it will not undergo any color change and will remain a blue color. So, it is a negative result in this circumstance. If there are simple carbohydrates present in the solution, the solution will turn reddish and so the result is positive. For the last control test, we used starch solution to test
4. Scenario: You are investigating a homicide involving a victim found dead in his apartment with a single gunshot wound to the head. You discover a suicide note. What key steps would you take to determine this death was truly a suicide and not a murder?
The case I chose to write on is based on a DVD that we watched in class called ‘Beaten by a hair’. In this case, a woman was reported missing after she went to work and never returned home. After the police discovered a bloody pillow case in the woods, near her house, they linked it to the missing pillow case in the woman’s room, and then realized that they had a murder case on their hands. A mystery in the case was that one of the local neighbors had mentioned seeing the woman leave through the front door of her house but the evidence says different, so investigators had to find out who left the house that morning. I am interested in this case because it was very intriguing how the forensic officers put all the pieces
11:30 P.M. approximated time of death. 8:15 A.M. Wednesday, April 15th Victim found. Victor Timm, 20 years old (5’8”, 150 lbs). Cause of death: Strangulation/suffocation. It is thought that there was tension between victim and 6 other students all apart of the “VOCALPALOOZA” ( a local choir competition). Witnesses were able to recreate the crime scene with artificial materials which helped police and detectives find the motive of the murderer. With all of the clues taken into consideration, I was able to come to a conclusion. I charge Ms. Elle Corazon with the brutal murder of Victor Timm.
Last Friday, authorities were called to a property in Australia after shoots had been fired; taking the lives of seven individuals, the case has been designated as a murder-suicide case. It was before dawn when police were called and arrived at a property in Osmington, Australia. It has been reported that they found one of the adult bodies outside, another inside the main house and a third adult and four children inside a shed. They were a family and resided in the property of the murder. The community has responded with sympathy and fear and the family members are devastated. However authorities claim there is no reason to belief the case does not pose further danger to the community—they are not looking for any suspects because they have
This is an attempt to unravel the tangle by an objective and empirical examination of information from crime scene and post mortem examination of the victims. Pre-digested information such as speculative newspaper reports, and statements from witnesses other than those called in a professional capacity have been avoided since theirs is largely subjective testimony that confounds more than it informs.
Domestic violence has been a main issue throughout history and all over the world; it can evidentially affect children, the elderly, women, and even men. Although abuse can affect many individuals, a significant portion of domestic abuse cases are against women. Globally, women are constantly facing physical, social and mental abuse by men and/or their significant others. In past years, the issue of domestic violence has gained the attention of researchers. In fact, studies have shown that it is a global issue negatively impacting the social and health status of individuals, particularly women. A survey of domestic abuse in Canada signifies that 29% of married women have been abused by their partners at least once (Nwosu, 2006). Many argue
The book gives a general overview of the field of forensic science. The sections of the book include “The Scene of the Crime; Working the Scene--The Evidence; Working the Scene of the Body Human;
“People dominate animals, men dominate women.” Each is a relation of hierarchy, an inequality, with particularities and variations within and between them. (Cite Orange book pg. 92.) For centuries, women have been viewed and used as a man’s “property”, whether it is being used for sexual satisfaction or for the sake of bearing children and taking care of the home. Men are typically perceived as head of the household and whatever they say goes; anything to satisfy their hunger for power and control. Have women ever had a say about what they want to use their bodies for? Laws against rape may have changed over time, but men’s consistent aggressive behavior unfortunately, has not.
If I saw a woman being mugged in the street by people bigger than me I would risk my life for that woman Because no one deserves to be mugged especially a woman. I would try everything in me power to save that lady, and get her to safety. I will try to take out the biggest one first because, if I can take him out it will out the thought in the back of their head that I might be able to do the same to them. As I’am try to fight off the muggers she can call 911, and all I have to do is fight them off until they come, and it might take all my power but at least I will be a hero for it. Not many people will do that for someone else because people only think of themselves and don’t ever put someone else live before theirs because people are selfish,
