Adding information such as, if Meredith, Rafael, and Amanda had any past interactions on the telephone or some other way. Other facts the creators could have included would have been looking at transactions made by the suspects to see if any unusual activity had occurred. The Amanda Knox case was a peculiar case that took many startling turns. For this reason, the documentary did not inform the viewers with facts and proofs instead it used opinions. There’s no denying that from the start of the documentary the creators take you through a well-constructed path of emotions and opinions they want you to feel.
Not only was Jack pronounced innocent, but it turned out that Gillian had been receiving assault from a different person entirely. That person being her father Amos Duncan, which would be kept a secret between the two of them. In this book, even with the lies that were told, the truth came out at the end. Picoult was able to insinuate the importance of telling the truth before it makes a big mess in someone else’s life. “Maybe we were a little curious, too, to see if we could pull it off… Punishing him.
However, if the crime scene investigator decides to write or draw on the document, it could be considered as contaminated evidence and may not be allowed in the court as evidence. After the questioned document evidence has been collected and preserved carefully and properly, it is then brought to the crime lab where a forensic scientist can process the document. Different types of tests are then ran on the submitted documents by a trained professional to decipher or restore the writing (Hilton, 1940). If identifying evidence is found on the documents, it can be used to marrow down suspects and produce the actor of the crime. For instance, if a daughter is stealing cheeks from her mother, and signing the mothers name as if she was the one furnishing the checks, a great way to look at this questioned document would be to compare handwriting samples.
The filmmaker showing this footage humanizes Emmett Till as more than a corpse. Although I didn’t know Emmett, I saw his pictures and wondered why the murderers would kill him so unjustly. Another example of applied specificity is the picture of Mamie Till crying over her son’s casket and her commentary. The image has appeared in the other three Emmett Till
He spends his days watching his neighbours and eventually suspects that one of them killed his wife. His caretaker, his girlfriend Lisa and his detective friend, at first unconvinced of his suspicion, eventually join him in his voyeurism and help him to solve the crime. In this essay, I will discuss how the film is about film itself. The notions of gaze will also be analysed, through a discussion of voyeurism and Jeff and Lisa’s relationship. This brilliant film about watching the neighbours simultaneously represents a self-reflexive film about the cinema and filmmaking.
The American Supreme Court ruled out that evidence because it was obtained from illegal doing, even if it is proved that it’s the Simpson’s blood. Simon A. Cole note that the Simpson case was not concerned with only the admissibility of DNA evidence but also was related to the issues of race, class and gender in the United States. Therefore, the DNA evidence is accepted as well and can be used as evidence to prove the guilt of the offender especially the serious case such as murder or rape. In common law,
Leland starts his narrative by flashing back to the scene of the crime, in which he depicts his interpretation of killing an intellectually disabled boy name Ryan Pollard, who just so happens to be his girlfriend Becky’s younger brother. Initiated by Leland’s teacher in the juvenile facility, Pearl Madison, asks Leland to keep a journal as a way of trying to understand his motives behind what is a seemingly senseless murder and provides the context of the entire movie. Although the idea of the journal was to partially to help Leland come to terms with his crime, a portion of it was to selfishly advance Pearl’s own personal achievement of becoming an accomplished writer - and he views Leland’s story as the ticket to his success. Additionally, numerous characters are presented throughout the movie, all of whom are in some way affected in the aftermath of the murder, essentially providing the background for possible explanations to be further evaluated. However, the movie never clearly

As Commissar he heads the Murders Squad (Mordkommission) of the Hamburg Metropolitan Police. Fabel studied history before he trained as a police officer and is half German half Scottish. He tends to work on cases that typically have a strong mythological or historical element. The first novel of the series Blood Eagle opens to Fabel investigating gruesome ritualistic killings that clearly indicated a serial killer was responsible. But the problem was while the two cases are similar in their gruesomeness, there was no clue to link them together except for a teasing email he stumbles upon.
• State a few cases where suspects were tricked into giving a confession, but later evidence exonerated them. o What police did to get a confession How this influenced suspects into giving a false confession. Conclusion Psychology has proven methods the police use can produce false confessions.

After the conviction an attorney who believed that Canen was innocent took on the case. Cara Wieneke, who was the attorney that took on her case, hired an independent expert to conduct an analysis of the fingerprint. This expert told Wieneke that based on her analysis Canen was excluded. But according to Wieneke the prosecutor refused a request to have the state crime lab re-analyze the print. Canen was then granted an evidentiary hearing and her expert prepared a report on her findings.
Anya Schultz, the author of a review titled Serial: A Captivating New Podcast, works to show how multiple narratives and stories can be manipulated and sometimes vastly misinterpreted. Serial, an intriguing, enthralling podcast hosted by Sarah Koenig, tells the story of Hae Min Lee, a young, beautiful, high school senior who was murdered in 1999. Lee 's case, as Koenig and Schultz point out, has a few missing pieces of information that were never accounted for. For example, how did the jury come to the conclusion that Lee 's ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, was truly guilty? Why did Syed 's lawyer forget to mention the letter from his acquaintance Asia McClain that could have polished his alibi?
It was said by multiple people that Larry Peterson had fresh fingernail scratch marks on his arms and by assumption, was definitely the culprit behind the murder. Peterson reported to the police department without hesitation and denied all accusations against him. Three of Peterson’s co-workers came forward and said that on the time in which the victim 's body was found dead, they were with Peterson. But after multiple interrogations, threats of prosecution and questionable police tactics” (Innocenceproject.org) his co-workers changed their stories and said that he confessed to the murder after a ride home from work. I’m sure you can guess how this went for Mr. Peterson, he later stood trial and was sentenced to life in prison.
I believe Officer Smith 's response of calling back up and then deciding to go knock at the sex offenders door was a good decision to make. But Officer Smith should have waited for backup before investigating another home. I believe Officer Smith also made the mistake of breaking into the sex offenders home after no response because of no proof and definitely because of no warrant. He had no authorization To break in. Therefore, in my point of view Officer Smith should have waited for his backup and gone for a warrant to search the sex offenders home.
