Forensic Examination of Clothing Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a crime or other incident takes place, clothing items are often present or left behind, and can become directly involved in the case itself. Items of clothing are thus one of the most common types of exhibit examined in court. They can provide valuable information in cases of violent crimes, such as homicide or rape, as well as in burglary, robbery, arson, and vehicular accidents.

A unique reference in the forensic arena

The first of its kind, Scientific Protocols for Forensic Examination of Clothing discusses the forensic examination of clothing in criminal cases. It examines the ramifications of DNA profiling and its effect on the screening approach to clothing examination. Coverage includes protocols and procedures, preliminary assessment, examination, testing and sampling, quality assurance and control, and the significance of results.

Applicable to a myriad of readers

Suitable for a wide range of readers, this book is designed for examiners trying to decide how to approach a clothing examination, those looking for more information on a specific topic, laboratory quality assurance officers in need of a reliable reference, as well as attorneys, investigators, archaeologists, and curators.

Expert authors

Author Jane Moira Taupin has testified as a forensic expert more than 130 times. Chesterene Cwiklik is a founder of the Pacific Coast Forensic Science Institute. Their expertise makes this a valuable resource for all those who examine clothing items and interpret subsequent findings.

Book News Annotation:

Forensic scientists Taupin and Cwiklik provide the first study devoted entirely to the forensic examination of clothing. They point out that, properly stored, evidence left on clothing can be preserved for many years and has been used to overturn convictions made before the invention of DNA analysis. Encouraging their readers to consider clothing as a crime scene in itself, they go through the steps of examination, consider the various fabrics, show types of stains and techniques for identifying them, and give pointers on determining where foreign material on clothes and shoes came from. The examples of different types of cuts and slashes on materials are particularly interesting. There are numerous photos and case studies. This is intended for law enforcement professionals and scientists who may not be familiar with forensic methods. The writing style is such that interested laymen would also be fascinated by the information. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
