Witness for the Prosecution
What is Forensic Science?
Forensic science can be simply defined as the application of science to the law.
In criminal cases forensic scientists are often involved in the search for
and examination of physical traces which might be useful for establishing
or excluding an association between someone suspected of committing
a crime and the scene of the crime or victim.
Such traces commonly include blood and other body fluids, hairs, textile fibres
from clothing etc, materials used in buildings such as paint and glass, footwear,
tool and tyre marks, flammable substances used to start fires and so on.
Sometimes the scientist will visit the scene itself to advise about likely sequence
of events, any indicators as to who the perpetrator might be,
and to join in the initial search for evidence.
