Crime scene

Crime scene

Crime scene reconstruction depends largely on the efficacy of the crime scene process and the accuracy of data (measurements, angles, location of evidence, condition of evidence, weather at the time of crime, and lighting at the time of the crime.  The crime scene investigators must be certain that if required they could return to the scene where the crime occurred and recreate the scene or construct a facsimile of the crime scene as it was when it was first encountered.  Inaccuracies or mistaken interpretation may result in a reconstruction that does not hold true to the actual crime scene when it occurred.  Personnel necessary for the reconstruction may have a special training certification to participate in the reconstruction for example shooting scene reconstruction analyst or blood spatter pattern analyst

Focus your discussion on the following:

  • In crime scene logic processes both inductive and deductive reasoning is utilized.  Explain the difference between the two methods and their application to the crime scene protocol. 
  • Name 2 major limitations of crime scene reconstruction. 
  • Name and explain the 3 kinds of crime scene fingerprints. 
  • Fingerprints are one of the mainstays for crime scene processing. There are a number of methods for obtaining fingerprints from a scene.  Explain main process used known as ‘dusting’ and how the print is recovered
