CRC series in practical aspects of criminal and forensic investigations


Homicide and forensic consultant Geberth, a former New York City detective, presents the new edition of his "best practice" investigation guide for the homicide professional, updating the text to account for new forensic techniques and investigative procedures. He has organized the information to mirror the course of a typical homicide investigation from initial notification to police through the procedural steps of a proper investigation, including the crime scene search, estimation of time of death, identification of the deceased, death notifications, collection of evidence, the autopsy, news media policy, identification of suspects, criminal personality profiling, and supervision and management issues. The new edition includes two new chapters on the application of DNA technology and equivocal death investigations, those investigations involving staged crime scenes or a lack of determination of homicide or suicide. He incorporates illustrative case material, including photographs, throughout the text.
