At a news conference, Michael Bouchard of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms told reports the rifle “has been forensically determined to be the murder weapon”. Investigators were able to match Muhammad’s rifles to 11 of the 14 shootings by a series of ballistic tests. First the bullets were recovered from the victims. When the rifle was found they were able to match them up by the markings or rifling impressions pattern on the fired ammunition by the barrel of the rifle. The rifling pattern in the barrel that fired a particular bullet can be determined by counting the number of groove or land impressions around the circumference of the bullet.
McVeigh also showed Fortier a diagram of his plans of how he planned to build the bomb. In addition, there is also speculation that was arisen about the involvement of more people when the Secret Service had once stated that after reviewing video of the rental Ryder truck outside of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building that shows “suspects” exiting the truck three minutes before the

She went missing the same day. On November 11, Avery was charged with the murder of Halbach after her car and overdone bone fragments were found at the salvage yard. He upheld that authorities were attempting to frame him for Halbach 's vanishing to make it harder for him to win his pending civil case regarding the false sexual assault conviction. To avoid a conflict of interest, Mark R. Rohrer, the Manitowoc County district attorney, requested that authorities from bordering Calumet County lead the investigation. Manitowoc County authorities remained involved in the case, however, leading to
Well, they weren’t evidence for the State’s case anymore, or at least not to me. On the car key, Teresa Halbach’s DNA wasn’t even found in the creases. It would’ve been cleaned to a great degree to get her fingerprints off of that. The blood in the car was supposedly because of a cut on Avery’s finger.
Tire tracks, tire prints, and other vehicular data can be found at my crime scenes, but many times is overlooked or destroyed by crime scene investigators, police, weather, and strangers. Collecting, preserving and analyzing tire impressions and tire tracks can reveal the brand of tire, width of tire, unique wear and peculiarities to determine whether that vehicle was present at the crime scene. In 2007, the case of Brown v. the State (Coffee County, GA) Curtis Andrew Brown was arrested and convicted for assaulting an elderly, married couple based on their testimony and identification of Brown. In addition, tire tracks collected at the victims home were analyzed and compared to Brown’s Chevrolet Blazer and deputies were able to testify the
The alexandrite locket Sondra took from Rosalie after she was murdered contained a picture that “looks like Rosalie” and was assumed to be Rosalie’s mother which was more than enough evidence for Mr. Carpenter and his team to search for the missing evidence to solve the mystery. Tracing back from previous evidence, Mr. Carpenter concludes that Eliot Kendall is the person who is responsible for all the murders. By using Edgar Allan Poe’s device, Mr. Carpenter reveals to the audience who the murderer
Although the undercover officer was looking for a confession, he decided to use Mr. Sophonow’s knowledge and demonstration of the locking technique as further evidence that would pin him to the case, as it was noted that the door was locked from the inside when Barbara Stoppel’s life came to an untimely end. Lastly, police found the twine that had fibres of Barbara Stoppel’s sweater and was thought to have been the murder weapon. This physical evidence could have come from one of two places; Power twines company or the
The FBI has numerous divisions that specialize in specific forensic sciences. One of the subdivisions is the Firearms tool marks Unit or otherwise known as the FTU. The FTU main focus is determine whether a specific firearm fired a bullet or cartridge retrieved from a crime scene. The firearm examiner has two specific parts to their criteria, first they always solve fore the class characteristics and after they have successfully determined that step examiners then look and study the individual characteristics. Class characteristics used in firearms comparison are traits that have measurable features (Firearms & Tool Mark, n.d.).
Investigators are in the process of sending necessary paperwork to the victims phone company in an attempt to ping her cell phone.

I understand he is the individual who ordered the police station to press charge on the day of the arrest. For both witnesses, the evidence in chief was obtained by The prosecution and the cross examination by the defendant. The witnesses were not
Hypothetically if I was lead investigator on the Black Dahlia case occurring today the first step I would have taken after notifying the family and proper crime scene investigation would be to check were Short was last seen alive as they did in the real investigation. As the 47 case went the information would have been found out that she was last seen leaving the Biltmore Hotel, and from there I would do the normal canvasing of the area. As noted before the use of superior technology I believe would have been pivotal in solving this case, utilizing the many street cameras and camera’s outside of businesses might have helped get a sense of where Short was heading. Along with finding out where she was going we might have gotten more insight on who she was potentially looking out for or who she was with moments before her disappearance. A thing that made solving this case especially hard was her lack of constant communication with people she met and friends.
