Forensics & Blood Stain Pattern Analysis

Bloodstain Pattern Analysis for Criminal Defense Attorneys

Because we have four investigators on staff with criminal justice degrees, we are able to offer a full array of private investigation services, from marital infidelity and domestic violence investigations to Worker’s Comp and insurance fraud.  We also provide specialized services as required by our clients; for example, as a certified bloodstain pattern analyst, Kerry Graves, MSW, ABD offers criminal defense attorneys and their clients a significant advantage in crafting their defense, serving as a reliable, professional expert witness.

Bloodstain pattern interpretation is a valuable forensic tool in criminal investigations, helping determine the position of a victim and movement of a victim or suspect after the crime.  By analyzing the pattern and distribution of blood spatters and bloodstains, trained forensic bloodstain analysts like Kerry Graves, MSW, ABD can help reconstruct the physical events in a crime scene.

Bloodstain and blood spatter pattern analysis can reveal:

  • the series of events during a violent crime,
  • the movements of victim and suspect during and after the crime,
  • the number of wounds the victim likely suffered,
  • the type of weapon used to inflict the injury or death,
  • and other valuable details.

If you are a criminal defense attorney, and you need a reliable, experienced resource to analyze the blood spatter and bloodstain patterns for a criminal defense case you’re working on, please give Graves Investigations a call today at 1-877-638-8254.

At Graves Investigations, we know that the blood spatter patterns and bloodstains are not the only factor in determining your client’s guilt or innocence.  Crime scene diagrams, responding officer’s notes, firearms or other weapons recovered, autopsies, and crime scene photographs all play an important role in your client’s defense. We take an intelligent, detailed approach to our work, helping you determine if bloodstain or blood spatter pattern analysis is the right tool in your criminal defense toolbox.  We know our way around crime scenes, and we’ll work carefully to:

  • take photographs,
  • collect samples,
  • write comprehensive report of our findings, and
  • testify in court.
