There is often more than one crime scene in a homicide. In addition to where the body was found, there may be the scene where the earlier assault took place or where a body has been moved as well as the blood trail. We will be discussing how you can study the crime scene to answer the question – What was really going on here? We will be looking at cold case reviews, how cases went wrong and how to put them right.
