Principles of Bloodstain Pattern Analysis

Bloodstain evidence has become a deciding factor in the outcome of many of the world's most notorious criminal cases. As a result, substantiation of this evidence is crucial to those on either side of the courtroom aisle. The challenge is to obtain an authoritative reference that provides the latest information in a comprehensive and effective manner. Principles of Bloodstain Pattern Analysis: Theory and Practice presents an in-depth investigation of this important subject matter. A multidisciplinary approach is presented throughout the book that uses scene and laboratory examinations in conjunction with forensic pathology, forensic serology, and chemical enhancement techniques. Emphasis is on a thought process based on taxonomic classification of bloodstains that takes into account their physical characteristics of size, shape, and distribution, and the specific mechanisms that produce them. Individual chapters analyze case studies, with two chapters specifically discussing the details of legal issues as they pertain to bloodstain pattern analysis. Information highlighted throughout the book includes an examination of bloodstained clothing and footwear and information on bloodstain interpretation for crime scene reconstruction. Dramatic color images of bloodletting injuries, bloodstains, and crime scenes are also presented to compliment the technical content of this resource. Features § Provides 500 full color photographs - the first bloodstain pattern book presenting dramatic full color images of bloodletting injuries, bloodstains, and crime scenes § Contains appendices with scientific data that includes trigonometric tables and metric equivalents, as well as crime scene and laboratory check lists, and biohazard safety precautions § Discloses court decisions relating to bloodstain pattern analysis and presumptive blood testing § Written by authors with many years of experience in the field, and features chapters contributed by qualified and respected forensic scientists and attorneys

The discipline of Bloodstain Pattern Analysis (BPA) is founded on the visual evaluation of the diagnostic properties of bloodstain patterns and an interpretation of the mechanistic cause(s) leading up to their deposition at scenes of violent crime. The lack of objective bloodstain pattern measures and the often subjective opinions of bloodstain pattern analysts are among some of the main criticisms of the discipline. It is also argued, that the process of characterising the main properties of a bloodstain pattern

Today's resources on bloodstain analysis are still based on methods that were derived in the 1920s. Although medical and clinical research have provided a growing body of information on blood composition and behavior, this information has been ignored in favor of historical bloodstain analysis methods-until now. With 25 years of experience in the field, author Anita Wonder shows how to use these new methods for interpreting bloodstains, including non-Newtonian fluid behavior (a process that does not conform to Sir Isaac Newton's

[Truncated abstract] Bloodstains and bloodstain patterns are some of the most common forms of physical evidence encountered during the forensic investigation of incidents involving violence against a person. Bloodstain Pattern Analysis (BPA) is the forensic discipline that integrates these physical evidence records into complex forensic matrices with a view to offering reconstructive dialogue on events where blood has been shed. Whilst fingerprint or DNA analysis can supply information on "who" may have been involved in a violent event, BPA can

Bloodstain pattern analysis (BPA) provides significant evidentiary value in crime scene interpretation and reconstruction, but many aspects of BPA are controversial due to the heavy reliance on qualitative and subjective interpretation. For example, the differentiation between so-called "medium" and "high" velocity impact spatter patterns - legacy terminology typically associated with blunt instrument and gunshot impacts, respectively - has traditionally relied on visual assessment of the average drop size in the pattern. Because this methodology is subjective and susceptible to context
