The ORIGINAL BASIC DEATH INVESTIGATOR TRAINING COURSE!

The purpose of this 4 day course is to provide training in medicolegal death investigation. Prior to the institution of this course 40 years ago, there was NO training available for medicolegal death investigators. Mary Fran Ernst and Dr. Gantner developed this training course to provide training for those who were tasked with investigating deaths. Fast forward 40 years, we are still the premier basic trainer for medicolegal death investigators. Anyone who plays a role in the investigation of medicolegal deaths, whether they be coroners, police officers, homicide detectives or medi...

I was first introduced to the following quote while attending a footwear class presented by the Northeastern Association of Forensic Scientist in Providence, Rhode Island in October 1990. “If the law has made you a witness, remain a man (woman) of science. You have no victim to avenge, no guilty or innocent person to convict or save – You must bear witness within the limits of science.” It was introduced by Ernie Hamm of FDLE during his lecture and was spoken by Dr. Paul C. Brouardel who was the Chair of Forensic Medicine, Sorbonne 1897. This is a truth that every forensic scientist must be conscious of from the crime scene to the courtro...

SIRCHIE is offering a 3 day “hands-on” training class on searching for and properly investigating and recovering remains from a clandestine grave site.

The legal term corpus delicti means no one can be charged of a crime if there is no evidence a crime has been committed. In a homicide, the key piece of evidence for the case is the body. Perpetrators will go to great lengths to conceal a body, dumping them in remote locations, hiding the body under cover, and many times burying the bodies to conceal the crime. This course will teach the various techniques for search and recovery of remains from clandestine graves. Principles of search ...

Footwear impression evidence is the most overlooked evidence at crime scenes. Criminals will often wear gloves or wipe down objects that they touch at crime scenes but rarely do they remove their shoes or intentionally destroy the evidence left by their shoes. An article published in Evidence Technology Magazine stated that many European police agencies are reporting footwear evidence being collected in over 70% of their cases. This class will hopefully encourage crime scene examiners to be more diligent about detecting and recovering footwear impression evidence.

StateFlorida
Meeting InformationWhat is forensic science and how is it applied in actual criminalcases? This workshop gives the answers. But first, we must recognize that there is nothing mystical or magical about scientific evidence. It is a tool that gives voice to physical items that cannot speak for themselves. In the hands of competent, responsible professionals, forensic science makes our criminal justice system more fair and reliable. In the wrong hands, it can incriminate the innocent or misdirect authorities from dangerous perpetrators.

Mr. John Collins' work and expertise were developed during a 20-year forensic science career in which he emerged as among t...
