In this episode of SciShow, we’re going to investigate a murder. But first, we’re going to have to learn all about forensics, the use of science in criminal law and the real-life version is a little different from what you might see on TV.
Fingerprints, what’s possible in facial recognition and much more.
Dr Martin Hall is a biomedical entomologist at the Natural History Museum who assists police forces at the crime scene during an investigation into a suspicious death. In forensic casework, his role is to establish a minimum post-mortem interval from insects found on and around the human remains at the crime scene. This minimum post-mortem interval helps to indicate the specific time when the victim died.
