    DNA Test Helps Enforce Pet Clean Up Policy SAN DIEGO - The same DNA technology that has solved cold case murders is now being used to crack down on a whole new class of criminals: dog owners who don't clean up after their pets. "Unfortunately, people leave surprises in my yard, but I always carry plastic bags, so I can clean up those surprises," said dog owner Ted Stevens. Now, BioPet Vet Lab ,a company in Knoxville, Tenn., has developed technology that is says can identify the dogs that leave unwelcome calling cards on neighborhood lawns. The system, called Pooprints,...

    Jurors looked stunned on Thursday as Casey Anthony, who faces the possibility of the death penalty if convicted of murdering her daughter two-year-old Caylee, started laughing in court. As she waited for the afternoon session to begin she smiled broadly, at one trying to cover up her giggles with her hand. Just a couple of hours earlier jurors heard dramatic tape recordings of detectives telling Casey Anthony that she risked being judged as a 'cold-blooded, callous monster' after she lied to them over her daughter’s disappearance

    Detectives who need to park near courthouses now have to ask for permission if they want to use their unmarked cars, the Daily News has learned. The directive comes in the wake of revelations by The News that the NYPD has been towing unmarked cop cars, leaving detectives stranded with no way to transport suspects, witnesses or victims. The NYPD says the towing, carried out by traffic enforcement agents under the direction of the Internal Affairs Bureau, is necessary to prevent detectives from blocking hydrants and crosswalks and parking on sidewalks.

    7/27/2009 - AL ASAD AIR BASE, Iraq (AFNS) -- Television has glorified the crime scene detective to an almost supernatural level. Sharply dressed investigators can scan through a crime scene draped in a steel blue light and can instantly tell who committed the crime even though police officers have worked the scene for a long time. In a 30-minute episode a crime is committed, the scene processed and the killer is caught. In real life it is not that easy. Police work long hours and often are granted unlimited amounts of time to sift through the smallest details of a...

    <p>The man was found wrapped in a tarp, floating gently in the Sudbury River. His killing was a mystery, and so was his identity.

Then last spring, Bobby Lingoes happened across a description of the dead man and his tattoo. Lingoes posted the details on the Doe Network, a website for volunteers like him who search for missing people in their spare time.</p>

    Can dynasty detectives unearth the Medici secrets? By Bruce Johnston in Rome (Filed: 13/12/2003) The bodies of 50 members of Florence's Medici dynasty - some of whom are believed to have been poisoned - are to be exhumed for forensic tests to determine how they lived and died. The first members of the family who ruled Florence from the 15th century to 1737 will be removed from the Medici Chapels in Michelangelo's church of San Lorenzo in June. Experts say DNA testing could yield some "sensational surprises" and also provide a true family tree, showing who was related - and...
