Da liegt es nahe, dass E.J. Wagner die Sherlock Holmes Geschichte gemeinsam mit den Anfängen der Kriminaltechnik unter die Lupe nimmt. Die Autorin beschreibt, mit welchen Aberglauben sich die Kriminalisten im 19. Jahrhundert noch herumschlagen mussten und mit welchen Tricks sie den Schurken auf die Schliche kamen. Elementar, wenn Sie sich für Forsensik, ihre Geschichte und den wohl berühmtesten Detektiven aller Zeiten interessieren.

Crime scene investigation involves the use and integration of scientific methods, physical evidence, and deductive reasoning in order to determine and establish the series of events surrounding a crime. The quality of the immediate crime scene response and the manner in which the crime scene is examined are critical to the success of the investigation. Evidence that is missed or corrupted by incomplete or improper handling can have a devastating effect on a case and keep justice from being served. The Practice of Crime Scene Investigation covers numerous aspects of crime scene investigation, including the latest in education and training, quality systems accreditation, quality assurance, and the application of specialist scientific disciplines to crime. The book discusses a range of basic and advanced techniques such as fingerprinting, dealing with trauma victims, photofit technology, the role of the pathologist and ballistic expert, and signal processing. It also reviews specialist crime scene examinations including clandestine laboratories, drug operations, arson, and explosives.

Seit Jims ungeklärtem Tod hat Bee keinen ihrer Freunde mehr gesprochen. Als sich die fünf ein Jahr später in einem noblen Wochenendhaus an der Küste wiedertreffen, entgehen sie nachts nur knapp einem Autounfall. Unter Schock und vom Regen durchnässt kehren sie ins Haus zurück. Doch dann klopft ein geheimnisvoller Unbekannter an die Tür und eröffnet ihnen das Unfassbare: Der Unfall ist wirklich passiert und es gibt nur einen Überlebenden. Die Freunde sind in einer Zeitschleife zwischen Tod und Leben gefangen, in der sie dieselben elf Stunden immer wieder durchlaufen – bis sie sich geeinigt haben, wer von ihnen überlebt. Der Schlüssel zur Entscheidung scheint Jims Tod zu sein – in ihrer Verzweiflung beginnen die Freunde nachzuforschen, was wirklich mit ihm passiert ist, in jener Nacht, in der er in den Steinbruch stürzte. Und langsam wird klar, dass sie alle etwas zu verbergen haben … Ein echter Page-Turner, der einen nicht mehr loslässt!

Every action performed by a crime scene investigator has an underlying purpose: to both recover evidence and capture scene context. It is imperative that crime scene investigators must understand their mandate—not only as an essential function of their job but because they have the immense responsibility and duty to do so. Practice Crime Scene Processing and Investigation, Third Edition provides the essential tools for what crime scene investigators need to know, what they need to do, and how to do it. As professionals, any investigator’s master is the truth and only the truth. Professional ethics demands an absolute adherence to this mandate. When investigators can effectively seek, collect, and preserve information and evidence from the crime scene to the justice system—doing so without any agenda beyond seeking the truth— not only are they carrying out the essential function and duty of their job, it also increases the likelihood that the ultimate goal of true justice will be served. Richly illustrated—with more than 415 figures, including over 300 color photographs—the Third Edition of this best-seller thoroughly addresses the role of the crime scene investigator in the context of: Understanding the nature of physical evidence, including fingerprint, biological, trace, hair and fiber, impression, and other forms of evidence Assessing the scene, including search considerations and dealing with chemical and bioterror hazards Crime scene photography; scene sketching, mapping, and documentation; and the role of crime scene analysis and reconstruction Bloodstain pattern analysis and discussion of the body as a crime scene Special scene considerations, including fire, buried bodies, and entomological evidence Coverage details the importance of maintaining objectivity, emphasizing that every action the crime scene investigator performs has an underlying purpose: to both recover evidence and capture scene context. Key features: Outlines the responsibilities of the responding officer, from documenting and securing the initial information to providing emergency care Includes three new chapters on light technology and crime scene processing techniques, recovering fingerprints, and castings Addresses emerging technology and new techniques in 3-D Laser scanning procedures in capturing a scene Provides a list of review questions at the end of each chapter Practice Crime Scene Processing and Investigation, Third Edition includes practical, proven methods to be used at any crime scene to ensure that evidence is preserved, admissible in court, and persuasive.

Forensic science has been variously described as fascinating, challenging and even frightening. If you have only a vague concept of what forensic science is, this book will provide the answer. Aimed at non-scientists, or those with limited scientific knowledge, Crime Scene to Court covers all three main areas of an investigation where forensic science is practised, namely the scene of the crime, the forensic laboratory and the court. Coverage includes details of how crime scene and forensic examinations are conducted in the United Kingdom, the principles of crime scene investigations and the importance of this work in an investigation, and courtroom procedures and the role of the expert witness. The latest methods and techniques used in crime scene investigation and forensic laboratories are reported, cases are presented to illustrate why and how examinations are performed to generate forensic evidence and there is a bibliography for each chapter which provides further material for those readers wishing to delve deeper into the subject. This revised and updated edition also includes coverage on changes in professional requirements, the latest developments in DNA testing and two new chapters on computer based crimes and Blood Pattern Analysis. Ideal for those studying forensic science or law, the book is intended primarily for teaching and training purposes. However, anyone with a role in an investigation, for example police, crime scene investigators or indeed those called for jury service, will find this text an excellent source of information.
