Forensics & DNA

DNA – An Important Forensics Tool

If you are concerned that a loved one has a drug problem, is cheating on you, or is involved in illegal or other dangerous activity—or if someone you love has gone missing—we can use forensic science to gather and analyze evidence such as latent fingerprints; residue such as paint, gunpowder, fibers, and drugs; bodily fluids such as blood, semen, and urine, as well as hair and skin; and other items of forensic value. We can also test hair, blood, and urine for illegal and controlled substances.

One of the best tools we have for filling in the gaps in any forensic investigation is DNA testing. DNA testing can help identify criminals or prove a person's innocence. Unlike fingerprints, which are only deposited if someone touches something with an ungloved hand, DNA is in every cell of our human bodies. Before, during, and after a suspicious or criminal act, an individual may leave DNA evidence. Therefore, common objects like cigarette butts, drinking glasses, toothbrushes, chewed gum, and just about anything else humans touch may be analyzed for traces of DNA.

The DNA from an object can be compared to DNA collected from multiple people, and matching it to a particular individual (or not!). In addition, local, state, and federal DNA records in the US are accessible via the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS), allowing authorized investigators to seek matches for DNA evidence collected.

DNA testing can be useful in private matters such as suspected infidelity, but it's also effective in legal situations. Most courts of law accept DNA testing as evidence, because if done properly, DNA profiling is extremely accurate.

With accurate DNA testing, we can help you in civil and criminal cases:

  • child custody and child support
  • inheritance and Social Security claims
  • clearing up adoption histories
  • connecting evidence with violent crime victims and suspects
  • proving paternity in rape or incest cases
  • missing persons investigations

From paternity tests to missing person searches, Graves-Wiley will help you get the evidence you need. Give us a call today, and we'll help you understand what options you have and what tests will benefit you the most.
