Forensics & Blood Stain Pattern Analysis
Blood stain pattern analysis is one of the many specialties in the field of forensics. It involves the scientific disciplines of biology, math, physics, and chemistry. If the analyst follows a particular process, the blood spatter analysis can provide strong, solid evidence. This makes it a very effective tool for investigators. When bloodstain patterns are analyzed, they can show qualified analysts what happened when the crime was committed. This information can be used to reconstruct the crime and bring the guilty parties to justice.
