This talk deals with evidence other than fingerprints and DNA. Hairs, fibres, glass, shoemarks, toolmarks. The first ever forensic murder case in France that was solved by Edmund Locard (the father of trace evidence). The Soham Murders, Sarah Payne kidnapping and the Lady in the Lake are all covered during this talk. This is the natural follow on to talk 1 - Dabs and DNA detects criminals.

About Chris Truran

I joined the Metropolitan Police on 6th March 1975. I trained as a Scenes of Crimes Officer (SOCO). I worked in central, north and north west London. During my 38½ years I examined over 25,000 crime scenes ranging from Shop-lifting to Murder. When I started examining crime scenes DNA was in its embryonic stage.

I have 4 talks, (1) Dabs and DNA detects criminals (2) Every Contact leaves a trace (3) Digital Forensics - who is watching you and (4) a funny thing happened on the way to the Old Bailey. They all relate to aspects of forensic and fingerprint evidence used in crime investigations.
