Crime Scene Investigation
You are a crime scene investigator on a homicide. You find that you have several types of evidence that must be photographed, logged, and recovered from that scene. More specifically, you find that there is drying blood on the floor that needs to be collected, a handgun and several shell casing near the victim, and what appears to be several hairs that are still in the hand of your deceased victim. For this assignment you are to do the following:
• Describe how you would recover dried blood, a handgun, shell casings, and hairs that are on the crime scene.
• What tools you would use to recover the evidence?
• How would you package it for safe keeping and transportation?
• What types of tests could be run on this evidence at the crime lab?
