CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION: AN ILLUSTRATED CASE STUDY APPROACH is today’s most modern, complete, visual, and “reality-based” guide to criminal investigation. Unlike other texts, it presents both written cases and a full sequence of photos for each case, enabling students to view crime scenes from top-to-bottom, and realistically apply investigative concepts. The authors first introduce core investigative tools, demonstrating the proper use of law and evidence gathering techniques. Next, they present detailed methods for investigating a wide spectrum of specific crimes. Each type of crime is illuminated with a detailed case study and a complete series of properly-sequenced crime scene photos. This text’s “no punches pulled” coverage helps students understand exactly what to expect in the field. It also contains detailed coverage of many crimes that other books overlook, including street gang crime, and crimes involving explosives.

Sherlock Holmes ist nicht einfach nur ein Klassiker, mit seinen rationalen und wissenschafltichen Methoden ist er der Urvater der heute so beliebten Serien über Forensiker und Gerichtsmediziner (CSI, Der letzte Zeuge, Crossing Jordan). Da liegt es nahe, dass E.J. Wagner die Sherlock Holmes Geschichte gemeinsam mit den Anfängen der Kriminaltechnik unter die Lupe nimmt. Die Autorin beschreibt, mit welchen Aberglauben sich die Kriminalisten im 19. Jahrhundert noch herumschlagen mussten und mit welchen Tricks sie den Schurken auf die Schliche kamen. Elementar, wenn Sie sich für Forsensik, ihre Geschichte und den wohl berühmtesten Detektiven aller Zeiten interessieren.

Environmental and Criminal Geoforensics

Geological techniques are widely used in two aspects of serious criminal investigations: (1) the search for clandestine burial sites, based on near-surface geophysics or through the detection of decomposition signals and (2) the analysis of trace evidence to identify its source location or test the possible association between the trace evidence and a known location of an offence. Although geoforensics is used in such investigations world-wide there are still considerable gaps in the published literature. In addition, there is increasing concern regarding the illegal release of wastes either into the atmosphere, water courses or on to the land surface, and a growing realization that the techniques used in criminal forensics are equally useful in the investigation of environmental crime. This book bridges the gap between environmental and criminal geoforensics with conceptual, methodological and case study contributions. This demonstrates the significant potential that geoforensics holds for investigating and regulatory officers.

In addition to covering the work undertaken in a number of European countries, the case studies presented cover a range of issues dealt with by forensic anthropologists from around the world including; stab wounds; blunt force trauma; gunshot wounds; dismemberment; burning; personal identification, including issues relating to the investigation of ancestry in European investigations; juvenile human remains; the work of forensic anthropologists in unsolved cases; and work undertaken to eliminate discoveries of human remains from police investigations. The final chapter of the book explores new developments in the field of forensic anthropology with gait analysis and facial recognition of a living individual based on analysis of CCTV footage. This book is primarily designed for students of forensic anthropology and those engaged in forensic anthropological work in various areas of the world.

Soils have important roles to play in criminal and environmental forensic science. Since the initial concept of using soil in forensic investigations was mooted by Conan Doyle in his Sherlock Holmes stories prior to real-world applications, this branch of forensic science has become increasingly sophisticated and broad. New techniques in chemical, physical, biological, ecological and spatial analysis, coupled with informatics, are being applied to reducing areas of search by investigators, site identification, site comparison and measurement for the eventual use as evidence in court. Soils can provide intelligence, in assisting the determination of the provenance of samples from artifacts, victims or suspects, enabling their linkage to locations or other evidence. They also modulate change in surface or buried cadavers and hence affect the ability to estimate post-mortem or post-burial intervals, and locate clandestine graves. This interdisciplinary volume explores the conceptual and practical interplay of soil and geoforensics across the scientific, investigative and legal fields. Supported by reviews, case-studies from across the world, and reports of original research, it demonstrates the increasing convergence of a wide range of knowledge. It covers conceptual issues, evidence (from recovery to use in court), geoforensics, taphonomy, as well as leading-edge technologies. The application of the resultant soil forensics toolbox is leading to significant advances in improving crime detection, and environmental and national security.

Carrick Francis besaß schon immer die zweifelhafte Gabe, Ärger und Probleme jeder Art wie ein Magnet anzuziehen. Das einzige, was ihn vor Haftstrafen oder Schlimmerem bewahrte, ist seine unverbrüchliche Freundschaft zu Deacon Winters. Deacon war seine Rettung und half ihm, seine unglückliche Kindheit und die Misshandlungen durch seinen Vater zu überstehen. Crick würde alles tun, um für immer bei Deacon bleiben zu können. Deshalb schiebt er seine Studienpläne auf als Deacons Vater stirbt. Er springt ein und hilft seinem Freund, so wie der ihm geholfen hat. Deacon wünscht sich nichts mehr, als dass Crick seinen schlechten Erinnerungen und ihrer kleinen Stadt entflieht und eine strahlende Zukunft findet. Aber nach zwei Jahren, in denen seine Gefühle für seinen Freund immer tiefer werden, kann er der Versuchung nicht mehr widerstehen und gibt Cricks Annäherungsversuchen nach. Der schüchterne Deacon gibt endlich zu, dass er ein Teil von Cricks Leben werden möchte. Aber Crick wartet nur darauf, von Deacon wieder verstoßen zu werden – so wie er in der Vergangenheit von seiner Familie verstoßen wurde. Eine seiner typischen, spontanen Fehlentscheidungen lässt ihn weit weg von zuhause enden. Deacon bleibt allein zurück. Er ist am Boden zerstört und muss hart kämpfen, bis er sein gebrochenes Herz wieder heilen und er in einer Welt überleben kann, in der Cricks Liebe ein ewiges Versprechen ist, das vielleicht niemals in Erfüllung gehen wird.
