The Christopher Vaughn case is a popular case in which ballistics and blood spatter aided in solving. Vaughn pleaded not guilty in court, and the defense stuck to the case that it was a murder-suicide case involving his wife. Paul Kish, a blood spatter expert assigned to the case, said that the evidence found at the crime scene did not correlate with Vaughn’s story. Vaughn’s blood was found in many different places; the center console, on his wife’s shorts, on the front and back of her seatbelt, and on the carpet between her shoes. Vaughn’s original statement did not mention the blood present on the seatbelt. When investigators at the crime scene unlatched and then re-latched her seatbelt, the wife’s chin was directly above the bloodstain. She was shot under the chin, therefore it was previously concluded that it must have been her blood present on the seatbelt. However, the Illinois State Police crime lab proved that it was in fact Christopher Vaughn’s blood on it. His wife’s blood was also found on the center console, but it was disturbed before it began to congeal. In addition, it appeared that some of her blood on the console was wiped towards the passenger seat from the driver’s seat. Kish concluded that someone had come into
David McDermott is a 42-year-old man who was found in Ghana, after a three-year manhunt. He was one of Britain’s most wanted fugitives and he was captured in Ghana for his connection to plot to bring £71m worth of cocaine into the UK. McDermott is suspected of being a member of an organized crime syndicate from Liverpool. It is believed that the group is responsible for a failed smuggling operation discovered by the border force at Tilbury Docks in May 2013. In May 2013, the officers had seized 400 kilograms cocaine that was smuggled into the country in a frozen Argentinian beef container. Also, McDermott is wanted for conspiracy to blackmail. Currently, he is held in custody by the Ghanaian authorities. His arrest means that in total, seventy-six out of eighty-six fugitives have now been caught.
The forensics team that was called to the scene of the crime was able to determine that the two of the three murders was done in a close range while one of them which is the one of his sister, was done from a few feet away. The crime was a part of an idea to try and get some money by Stanley as well as his two accomplices to the crime (Montaldo, 2015). They didn’t want to try and make money the right and legal way, but they wanted the money fast and a lot of it so they devised a plan to try and get this money plus more all by way of armed robbery, but it turned into a little spree of robberies, but after the murder happened at the hotel, they slowed down because of how scared they were to get caught by law enforcement even though they were caught a short time after (Montaldo, 2015). When apprehended, there was a twelve-gauge shotgun collected and that was more than enough evidence to put Stanley at the scene of the crime in order to gain a proper conviction of the man who did the crimes (Montaldo,
