Assignment 4 Murder
The examination and interpretation of physical evidence found at the crime scene can assist in the reconstruction of the crime. Through bloodstain pattern analysis, the examiner can reconstruct the movements of the victim and the offender. Fingerprint and shoe impressions can assist in the identification of suspects. The detective will conduct interviews of the witnesses and suspects. The crime scene investigator documents, detects, collects, and preserves photographs and other physical evidence. The medical examiner will perform the autopsy and communicate with the detective and the crime scene investigator about their findings. Criminal investigation is therefore a team effort. Once the offender is arrested, the prosecutor will present the investigation to the court and officially file charges against the offender. There is no room for error.
