Labelling evidence. Reconstruction of a forensic officer labelling evidence at a murder scene. He is labelling a spent cartridge shell (D) found next to a body. Forensic investigation can link this to the gun (B). Other evidence can place a suspect at the crime scene, such as gunshot residue, fingerprints, DNA from skin and saliva on the cigarette butt (A), and the bloody footprints. This evidence may result in a suspect being convicted of murder. Labelling of the evidence is a crucial part of recording the process of investigation. The protective clothing prevents contamination of the crime scene.
Model release available. Property release not required.
