Finding Blood Under Wallpaper
Although I am no longer in law enforcement and I don’t work on cases I still conduct research in the forensic sciences. I thought some of you might find this latest article interesting. Criminals may employ a variety of tactics to conceal forensic evidence from CSIs. Some of these efforts can be very effective while others are not. As CSIs we continually push ourselves to discover new techniques to thwart criminal efforts to conceal evidence. As authors, it pays to keep abreast of some of these techniques in your writing. In the article linked above one of the major discoveries was the false-positive reaction with one type of wall paper. This finding supports the idea that wallpapers should be removed to test for neat or latent blood staining underneath. Enjoy.
