This textbook on crime scene reconstruction (CSR) methods provides students with the fundamentals of event analysis, crime scene protocol, bloodstain pattern analysis, gunshot investigation, forensic pathology and the human body. Gardner, a felony criminal investigator and former chief of police, teams with Bevel, a forensic consultant, to discuss modern CSR methods for superposition, timing and sequence, bloodstain analysis, ballistics and wound patterns. Over 200 color photographs are included from actual case studies to define specific actions, the order of these actions and what did or did not occur during the incident under investigation.
