    Two years ago, in May of 2013, James George Stiffler shot a man who was burglarizing his home in Lewis and Clark County, Montana. The burglar, Henry Tomas Johnson of Helena, managed to make it to his car, but died before being able to leave the property. The case illustrates the ability of forensic science to determine details of what happened. From helenair.com: Henry Thomas Johnson, 37, of Helena, was shot dead in 2013 while apparently ransacking a home in Lewis and Clark County. Nearly two years later, the county attorney has charged homeowner James George Stiffler with felony...

    A forensic profiler whose career has included work on the double-murder case against O.J. Simpson and the Natalie Holloway disappearance says Barack Obama is confessing he’s under enormous pressure and is “slipping mentally.” “Not madness such as total loss of control mentally, but more and more drastic behavior seen in disturbed traumatized leaders,” said Andrew G. Hodges, M.D., who wrote “The Obama Confession: Secret Fear, Secret Fury.” Hodges, an expert who previously suggested Obama was revealing alarming ideas about martial law and described how the president wants “total gun control,” provided to WND an analysis of some of Obama’s recent...

Despite a wealth of forensic evidence against the 62-year-old, prosecutors have dismissed a lot of what the maid said about the alleged encounter, according to the newspaper.

    It's finally happened. After three years of Americans asking one simple question, he finally answered us. "Where's the birth certificate?" had been asked by millions of Americans. The request was for information that each member of the public is asked to produce every day for various purposes. Following a USA Today poll, showing that only 38% of the American people believe he was definitely born in the US, Obama felt he had no choice. Additionally, there was a book coming out by author, Jerome Corsi, titled, "Where's the Birth Certificate?" Less than a full day after the book had risen...

    2 little words started race for mayor: forensic auditJohn Kass October 6, 2010 Before we feast on the tribalism and intrigue of the upcoming Chicago mayoral campaign, let's not forget something. Let's not forget the guy who may have started it all. He did it by uttering two little words, and they echoed ominously through Chicago's political sub-basements. Just days after the two little words were said, Mayor Richard Daley announced he wouldn't seek re-election. Remember those two little words? "You mean, 'forensic audit'?" said Ald. Scott Waguespack, 32nd. "Those two little words?" Precisely. Forensic audit. **SNIP** And Emanuel? He's...

  • In with a bullet (forensic bullet-tagging technology)

    08/07/2008 10:14:57 AM PDT · by LibWhacker · 36 replies · 188+ views
    A new bullet-tagging technology being developed in the UK could give forensic teams a robust new tool in the fight against gun crime. The breakthrough has been achieved by a multidisciplinary team from Brighton, Brunel, Cranfield, Surrey and York universities, with funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). Project partners include the Forensic Science Service, BAE Systems and coatings manufacturer Andura. The tags, which measure 30 microns in diameter, are applied to gun cartridges by being embedded in cartridge coatings made from polylactic acid, sucrose ester and tetrahydrofuran. They then attach themselves to the hands or gloves...

    FORENSIC PHOTOGRAPHY BRINGS COLOR BACK TO ANCIENT TEXTILES COLUMBUS , Ohio – Archaeologists are now turning to forensic crime lab techniques to hunt for dyes, paint, and other decoration in prehistoric textiles. Although ancient fabrics can offer clues about prehistoric cultures, often their colors are faded, patterns dissolved, and fibers crumbling. Forensic photography can be used as an inexpensive and non-destructive tool to analyze these artifacts more efficiently, according to new Ohio State University research. Kathryn Jakes Forensic photography helps researchers collect information from fragile artifacts before using expensive chemical tests, which cause damage during material sampling. The forensic method...

Traces of blood on the seat belt were believed to have come from a woman whom Lindgren attacked and raped. Instead of sending the whole car to the laboratory in Linköping, the police cut off...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - The U.S. military flew in two forensic specialists Saturday to examine the remains of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi "to see how he actually died" and to reconstruct the last minutes of his life, a spokesman said. The examination comes after U.S. authorities altered their initial account of the al-Qaida leader's death, first saying he died outright in a U.S. airstrike, then saying he survived but died soon after. Also, an Iraqi man raised fresh questions, telling Associated Press Television News that he saw U.S. soldiers beating an injured man resembling al-Zarqawi until blood flowed from his nose. Maj....

    5/18/2006 - ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE, Md. (AFPN) -- For forensic science consultants at the Air Force Office of Special Investigations' 33rd Field Investigations Squadron, criminal investigations in the Air Force begin at the crime scene. The work of Air Force forensic science consultants is similar to that of criminal investigators in the television show “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” said the squadron's Special Agent Tam Reed. “However, unlike CSI, we don’t get lab results back within an hour,” said Agent Reed, an AFOSI agent since joining the Air Force in 2000.

    PARIS (AFP) - US astronomers said they had pinpointed the moment and location when one of the most famous landscape pictures in photographic history was taken. "Autumn Moon, the High Sierra from Glacier Point," taken by Ansel Adams in Yosemite National Park, is a thrilling view of the American West, featuring a waxing Moon rising over dark, ice-tinged peaks. But precisely when Adams took the iconic black-and-white picture has never been clear, and dates for it range from the mid to the late 1940s.

In an astounding announcement, the scientists think they may have re-created an image of Jesus Christ when He was a 12-year old boy.Using the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth, which many believe bears the face of the crucified Christ, the investigators first created a computer-modeled, composite picture of the Christ’s face.Dr. Carlo Bui, one of the scientists said that, “the face of the man on the shroud is the face of a suffering man.
