Charles Floyd was affiliated with a gang of organized with a group and he defeated security at the crime scene. He also demanded cash/jewelry/money, and he has a good hideout technique because he hide out because that’s what he did to hide from the police. While he was at the scene he fired a weapon which when he did he killed an officer. Charles set fire to a car and he also vandalized other people’s car. The last actions that the suspect did was he only took money when he robbed the bank, and he prepared for the crime before he committing them.
It can refute a claim of self-defense and put a weapon in the suspect's hand. It can change a story from an alibi to one of consent. The more officers know how to use DNA, the more powerful a tool it becomes.” This proves that DNA evidence is very reliable and is hard evidence that cannot be argued upon. DNA is either found at the scene of the crime or isn’t.
In a tragic series of events, 36 year old Gaven Brooks was brutally murdered, by means of a single gunshot to the back of his head, and later found in a field twenty miles north of the town he lived in. Investigators are trying to piece together exactly what happened by using the evidence gathered from the crime scene, and from information given to them by means of close friends and relatives. The evidence collected were wine glasses, paper plates filled with half eaten food, a cigarette butt, a yellow queen-sized sheet, a bottle of red wine, shoe print markings left in the dirt road, and Mr. Brooks’ car which was found abandoned in a parking lot in downtown Centerville.

“On September 20th, 1986 a young woman was killed and, left behind at the scene, was a piece of DNA that investigators hoped would help solve the case” (Biemesderfer). There was no way to identify people yet. Nowadays, you can identify whose footprint it is by investigators and
0n 06/30/16 at about 0134hrs Officers were dispatched to 5516 Peyton Place APT3 for a possible robbery and adduction. The victim of the robbery, Anthony Tolliver stated he was sitting inside his apartment and his roommate (Melanie Rhodes) came in the front door with an unknown black male behind her. Tolliver stated the unknown male was standing behind Rhodes and had one arm around Rhodes neck and was holding a knife with the other hand. Tolliver stated the male demanded money or he would kill Rhodes. Tolliver stated Rhodes was begging Tolliver to give the male the money.
Without the help of DNA, connecting offenders to their victims and the scene of the crime, so many cases would be left unsolved. Shockingly enough, it wasn’t until 1984 where DNA was used for biological identification. Once DNA started to play such a big role in criminal justice, many cases where they didn’t have enough evidence to prosecute, were brought to court and finally solved. Even though there was such a large gap in when the offenses were first committed and when they were solved, there was still justice for the victims and their families. An important case where DNA changes everything would be that of Gary Ridgway, otherwise known as the green river killer.
The same night that incident took place he found another young women to follow home. She exited the freeway and asked why he was trailing her. Her name is Si Lin Yu, he forced her way into her vehicle and shot her right off the Santa Fe freeway in Los Angeles. The police recovered bullet cases that were the same from each murder that night and ran tests. 10 days later her murdered Vincent and Maxine Zazzara in their home.
O.J. Simpson was a beloved NFL football player and actor. He was very successful throughout his career and went on to win a Heisman Trophy. However, people may now remember him more for something else, being on trial for the murder of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman. He was ultimately found not guilty, but the evidence states otherwise. Blood is the first piece of evidence.
When investigating a murder, forensic scientists use a variety of methods to identify a killer. Most commonly, Forensic Scientists extract samples DNA from blood, semen or fingerprints to identify a killer, but there are more unique ways of solving a homicide. Footprints, psychology, analysis of skid marks and many more methods can be implemented to discover clues to solving a case. One that method that deems utter importance which is commonly overlooked is the study of bloodstain patterns. Bloodstain patterns can help identify a violent crime by drawing the conclusions about the nature, timing, methods used and significant details of the crime.
Conclusion After proposing recommendations and guidelines to the investigation team, it can be expected that the investigation will be able enough to provide justice and relief to the claimant. The team will also be able to identify and arrest the real culprit after analyzing all facts and information regarding the case. The efficient and effective use of strategic use of evidence against the suspects can prove to be decisive and result oriented. The investigation is also expected to follow all rules and regulations in this case and fulfill all the requirements of the case in a desired manner. This is also expected that the judgment and decision about this case will become an example through which other cases will be solved in the light of this case process and
Anna garcia is a hispanic 38 year old woman who passed away in her home. Her height is 64 inches. She weighs 165 pounds. The circumstances of her death are quite mysterious,due to the evidence found in the Hair samples,shoeprint samples,fingerprint and etc. Anna died in her home in her living room and was found by her neighbor Doug Green.
Testimonial i.e. witness: those who have witnessed the crime. 2. Physical evidence: Physical evidence could be any type material which has some link to the crime and could be able to connect with the crime and help to crack the case. The so called physical evidence collected by the crime scene investigator at the crime scene in the form f physical evidence that it May prove that a crime has been committed, they can Establish any key elements of a crime, Link a suspect with a crime scene or a so called victim, Establishing the identity or individuality of a victim or suspect, Corroborate verbal witness testimony and Exonerate the innocent this is the role and importance of crime scene investigator in the crime scene investigation at scene of crime.
Although, in our lab report, suspect ones DNA matched the crime scene when cut with enzyme one, this can be explained by how closely related the two suspects are. Therefore two enzymes were used to cut the DNA; the suspect has to match both. Moreover, the limitation to DNA fingerprinting is, if a person were to have an identical twin. This is because identical twins have the same DNA because they come from the same egg. If a suspect’s DNA matched that of the one being tested, and they had an identical twin, a farther investigation would need to be done.
It is based on extremely sensitive PCR techniques. Using DNA evidence suspects can be linked to crime scenes from as little as the skin cells on a steering wheel or saliva on a cigarette butt. DNA based forensic methods are much more efficient than the conventional methods because of so many obvious reasons. Cases could be solved even investigations begun after decades by analyzing DNA from degraded samples. Moreover, it is possible to deduce phylogenetic/evolutionary relations through DNA based forensic methods.
