Since Ancient Times, people have harnessed the power of science to solve crimes. The use of science in criminal investigation, known as forensics, is now one of the fastest-growing fields in law enforcement. Forensic Techniques guides readers through this fascinating field, from early landmarks to ongoing cases. Along the way, Forensic Techniques walks through the stages of a crime scene investigation, highlights the importance of proper evidence handling, and goes inside the morgue where autopsies are performed. Key crime-solving tools such as fingerprinting and DNA testing are explained. Finally, a detailed case history shows how forensic science has brought a variety of tools to solving the mystery of an unknown murder victim found in the mountains of California. Book jacket.
