Trace Evidence Analysis - Great Lakes Analytical Inc. Trace Evidence Analysis
Hair, soil, fibers, gunshot residue and pollen are only a few examples of trace evidence that may be transferred between people, objects or the environment when a crime is occurring.
Trace evidence can be used in investigations to potentially link a suspect and a victim to a mutual location.
A fiber sample obtained from a suspect can be identified through scientific analysis as originating from a garment worn by the victim. The analysis of the fiber evidence can help establish if the victim and suspect were in the same area.
