November 12, 2020 Virtual Luncheon - 1.0 CPE  

Fibers, hairs, glass, soil and paint chips belong to the trace category of evidence. Even
a small amount of evidence that the examiner is trying to identify may link to a source or
identify unique features. These can be used to connect a suspect to a victim or a crime
scene. Locard’s Exchange Principle states that any time two items come into contact
with each other, information is exchanged.

This talk is about the power of trace evidence and what we can determine from these
small clues that many times are overlooked. The talk also covered the tools used to
examine trace materials which can make these small items have a huge impact on a
case were discussed. It will not always give definitive information, but it will likely
provide circumstantial evidence. Rules of evidence are changing: the FBI is re-looking
cases based on hair analyses; also burn patterns and bite marks – they’re not seen as
overpowering evidence any more.
