One failing of many forensic science textbooks is the isolation of chapters into compartmentalized units. This format prevents students from understanding the connection between material learned in previous chapters with that of the current chapter. Using a unique format, A Hands-On Introduction to Forensic Science: Cracking the Case approaches the topic of forensic science from a real-life perspective in a way that these vital connections are encouraged and established. The book utilizes an ongoing fictional narrative throughout, entertaining students as it provides hands-on learning in order to "crack the case." As two investigators try to solve a missing persons case, each succeeding chapter reveals new characters, new information, and new physical evidence to be processed. A full range of topics are covered, including processing the crime scene, lifting prints, trace and blood evidence, DNA and mtDNA sequencing, ballistics, skeletal remains, and court testimony. Following the storyline, students are introduced to the appropriate science necessary to process the physical evidence, including math, physics, chemistry, and biology. The final element of each chapter includes a series of cost-effective, field-tested lab activities that train students in processing, analyzing, and documenting the physical evidence revealed in the narrative. Practical and realistic in its approach, this book enables students to understand how forensic science operates in the real world.

Hidden Evidence Forty true crimes and how forensic science helped solve them by David Owen preface by Kathy Reichs foreword by Thomas T. Noguchi, M.D. Hidden Evidence takes you to the scenes of 40 infamous crimes and into the heart of the forensic investigations. These are the true crime shockers that have grabbed headlines and aroused public passions. David Owen explains the scientific procedures that helped crack every one of these cases -- from the gathering of elusive physical clues to the examination of weapons and bodies, to the use of sophisticated scientific analysis. Threaded throughout the book is the history of forensic science and the technologies that support it, including: fingerprinting / autopsies / handwriting analysis / ballistics / hair sampling / blood typing / DNA testing / dental records / gas chromatography / mass spectrometry / compound and electron microscopes / toxicology The high-profile cases David Owen used to illustrate forensic developments are from as early as 1775, when Paul Revere used dentures to identify a slain soldier, to the latest developments in the Oklahoma bombing. Most will be familiar to readers, such as: The Lindbergh Kidnapping / Pan Am Flight 103 / The Kennedy Investigation / The Hitler Diaries / Wayne Williams / Ted Bundy / Jeffrey MacDonald / Dr. Josef Mengele / Robert Maxwell's suicide / Tsar Nicholas II / The World Trade Center bombing David Owen presents the facts, steering clear of speculation. Comprehensive in scope, thoroughly researched and expertly compiled, Hidden Evidence is, in the words of former Los Angeles County Coroner Thomas T. Noguchi, "a fascinating book... [and] an excellent mini-encyclopedia of widely discussed, high-profile cases." ---- Silent Witness How Forensic Anthropology is Used to Solve the World's Toughest Crimes by Roxana Ferllini foreword and case study by Dr. Cyril Wecht Bones have an uncanny knack of holding important clues as to the fate of the individuals to whom they belonged.

It's a fascinating and often dramatic world.
