The Bodyhunters

Aims

To show how:

  • Scientific techniques can be applied to criminal investigations.
  • Multi-disciplinary approaches are valuable in many scientific and forensic investigations.
  • Forensic techniques are more useful in some situations than in others.
  • The evidence of witnesses may, for a variety of reasons, be unreliable.
  • Legal proceedings do not always result in the drawing of appropriate conclusions from the available evidence.
