Mulawka presents this technical guide to postmortem fingerprinting and use of fingerprints in concert with other forensic and database resources to identify a dead person. The introduction reviews identification tools and the particular usefulness of fingerprinting. Workflow and optimal order of operations are presented first, followed by basic and advanced techniques for actually acquiring the fingerprint. Several chapters then address comparison of the fingerprint to available records. A sample of frequently relevant databases and strategies for match searching are presented. Record management for the postmortem data is also covered, and the last two chapters discuss the use of postmortem fingerprinting in cold-case reactivation and as an efficient method of identification after mass fatality incidents.
