Good morning ladies and gentlemen of the jury. My name is Alex Victorine and I am here to prove my client's innocence in the Lyle and Louise case. On trial before is John Wayne Gretzky, Larry Gretzky, and Mitch Wilson. My three clients are in danger of serving potential time for murder. This case started with the mysterious death of Louise Mondelo and her two children, Wally and Jan. One summer night a women, who appeared to be Ms. Mondello and her two children were driving on the highway, when they suddenly derailed and flipped over the side of Backbone Mountain. The three bodies were severely burned and could not be identified. Due to personal remains at the scene, investigators concluded the three people to be Louise, Wally, and Jan Mondelo.
A nutrition can help Hans by providing him a meal plan / diet to follow and help keep him on track, teach him about nutrition and its importance / affect on the body, and keep up on latest nutrition science to help provide Hans with a better outcome.
Jeffrey Moldowan and Michael Cristini, two men from Macomb County, Michigan, went on trial accused of rape and assault. The primary evidence against them consisted of the victim’s eyewitness identification and bite mark analysis by two dentists. Both dentists testified that the bite marks on the woman’s body matched the teeth of Cristini and Moldowan. One of those dentists, Allan Warnick, testified that the likelihood a bite mark on the female victim was made by someone other than Moldowan, “was at least 3 million to 1.” Later, the other dentist, Dr. Pamela Hammel recanted her testimony, saying that she had been uncertain that either defendant had in fact been responsible for the bite marks. According to Dr. Hammel, she had agreed to testify
In this paper I will be comparing contrasting two various aspects of forensic sciences used, and talking about the different tactics used to identify suspects; as well as the contrasts between the two methods. The man I will be talking about is John Wayne Gacy. The two methods I will be going over are, Finger print DNA and Forensic toxicology. These two are very similar, but made substantial differences in the evidence in his case.
The CSI effect describes the way CSI is exaggerated on crime television shows such as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Sherlock which influences public perception. As a result, Jurors have come to have unrealistic expectations about the quantity, quality, and availability of scientific evidence, thereby raising the effective standard of proof for prosecutors. As technology improves and becomes more prevalent throughout society, people may also develop higher expectations for the capabilities of forensic technology. The csi effect creates unrealistic expectations of the public and has raised the juror’s expectations of the crime investigating field.
How do we know what is true? How do we know if a man sentenced to death was truly a murderer? A question echoed by thousands of people revolting against the death penalty as the story of Todd Willingham made it to the headlines. In The New Yorker, under the title of Trial by Fire, came the terrifying enigma: “Did Texas execute an innocent man?” followed by a thorough listing of the evidence that was used to convict Willingham of setting his house on fire and resulting in the death of his three children, and how they were later disproved.
On July 15th, 2008, Caylee Marie Anthony, two-years-old, was reported missing by her maternal grandmother, Cynthia Anthony. On December 11th, 2008 a man named Roy Kronk found a plastic bag containing human remains in a wooded area near the Anthony’s home in Florida (1). The suspects in this case were Zenaida “Zanny” Fernandez Gonzalez and Casey Anthony. This case had a number of witnesses including Casey’s parents, friends, and family. Dr. Arpad Vass a forensic anthropologist, Dr. Tim Huntington a forensic entomologist, Dr. John Shultz a UCF anthropology professor, and chief medical examiner Dr. Jan Garvaglia and many others in the forensic science community were all critical witnesses during the trial (2). Casey Anthony, Caylee’s mother, was
Arthur Radley should receive a guilty conviction of second degree murder, because not only is there medical evidence and key witnesses, but his past record has shown he is prone to recklessness. Although, Arthur Radley did a courageous act of bravery in trying to protect the children, there were other ways to prevent Mr. Ewell from hurting the minors. Mr Ewell’s ill intentions and previous malicious actions have shown he needed to punished but not without a trial and a jury. With both the physical proof and the testimonies it is quite obvious what happened and who committed the crime. Without searching for reasons Arthur Radley killed a man in cold blood and should receive a guilty conviction.
The Innocence Project frees people from jail that were wrongly convicted of a crime. That is what happened to Roy Brown. Through the help of the Innocence Project, he was released from jail. Brown was convicted of a horrific crime that included murder, even though the evidence that was provided was analyzed and presented wrongly. This lead to his wrong convection.
Most cases where someone has been exonerated due to DNA retesting had a problem with eyewitnesses misidentifying the suspects. This is a problem that can change someone’s life forever. Misidentification of suspects is a flaw in the criminal justice system that can be addressed through more police training and increased help from the judges.
“Forensic anthropologist usually works in three broad categories,” said Texas State professor Jerry Melbye.” A Forensic Anthropologist help examine a human skeletal or decomposed remains in a legal setting to establish the identity of an unknown individual and to help determine the cause of death.A Forensic Anthropology work to find the individual that was murdered or was a homicide.They need to find the biological profile of that person.They have many ways to find a biological profile.A biological profile is a series of characteristics that an individual possessed during life but which critically can also be determined from skeletonized remains after death.To find a biological profile they’ll need to find the age, sex, gender, geographic ancestry, and trauma.They use fragments of bones from skulls and long bones to not only find the sex, age, and gender but sometimes they can find how they died.They also use those bones to find lots of information about that individual.For example, they use the skull to find their race and long bone for height.Two steps that forensic anthropologist will take to find this person’s
Forensic anthropology is the branch of anthropology which deals with the recovery of remains as well as the identification of skeletal remains which involve detail knowledge of osteology (skeletal anatomy and biology). In other words, forensic anthropology is the application of anthropological knowledge and techniques in the identification of human remains in medico-legal and humanitarian context. Forensic anthropology includes the identification of skeletal, decomposed or unidentified human remains. Forensic anthropology may also help determine the age, sex, stature and unique features of deceased from their remains. Personal identification is one of the main aspects of medico-legal and criminal investigations. Identification is important when unknown, fragmentary, burned or decomposed remains are recovered. This becomes more important especially in cases of major mass disasters where numbers of individuals are involved. Personal identification in broad terms includes estimation of age, sex, stature, and ethnicity. These estimations can be done by using various scientific techniques which can narrow down the range of individuals from the pool of possible victims or criminals (Nafte, 2009).
