Identifying Criminals and Victims

Series: Solve That Crime!

By Carol Ballard

Fingerprints, DNA evidence, trace evidence, witness statements—all of these help investigators figure out exactly what happened during a crime and who did it. Forensic scientists, artists, and pathologists help figure out who the victims and criminals are, and exactly what happened at the crime scene. “True Crime” sidebars and hands-on activities allow readers to become more involved.
