    Description

    DNA does not solve criminal cases-people do. Investigators must document every action, photograph every item of evidence, and create a complete case file that can be used to convict the guilty and exonerate the innocent. Each chapter begins with an overview of the felony investigated in the case study and highlights a key area of crime scene investigation. You will then use the case studies to walk through the investigative process and learn by example to create accurate case files.

    Quotes and reviews

    "Each chapter begins with an overview of the felony investigated in the case study and highlights a key area of crime scene investigation. You will then use the case studies to walk through the investigative process and learn by example to create accurate case files."--The Journal, Fall/Winter 2013
    "This practical guide to crime scene investigation was created with the help of 18 graduate students, and thus is a work ‘by students for students.’ Frequent case studies appear, coupled with regular student assignments that walk them through the process of creating complete and accurate case files. Each chapter begins with key terms and ends with discussion questions."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
