Paper Abstract

This presentation is a review of the basics involved in the interpretation of the crime scene based on facts derived from the physical and testimonial evidence obtained from the scene. This presentation will demonstrate the need to thoroughly document the scene to prove the interpretation. Part of this documentation is based on photography and crime scene sketches. While the methodology is simple and well demonstrated in this presentation this aspect is one of the tasks least completed by most law enforcement agencies.
