Tuesday May 14, 2013 at Hive13 – DIY CSI Forensics

Join us at Hive13 this Tuesday, May 14, at the 7:30 pm meeting for an informative look into Do-It-Yourself Crime-Scene-Investigation Forensics.

Member Brian Cochran (who is a Detective in the Boone County Sheriff’s Department assigned to crime scene investigation) will use material from the 40-hour course he teaches at the University of Tennessee’s National Forensic Academy.  Brian will perform live demonstrations of some of the coolest latent print development techniques; making finger prints appear on paper,  making them glow, and fun stuff like that.  The presentation will include a brief overview with slides showing real CSI jobs and case studies.  The case studies focus on the processes that are used and where the “maker” attitude was applied to bring the case to a successful conclusion.  The two case studies that will be presented are homicides.  Real crime scene photography and a limited number of postmortem examination photos will be shown.  It will not be anything different from what you would see on an episode of CSI or Dexter but these ARE real.  Both of these case study presentations have been shown to high school groups before, but this is an UP FRONT WARNING for those inclined to be squeamish.

Members, guests, first-time-walk-ins, and those interested in law enforcement and criminal investigations are welcome to come to hear this presentation.  Come to learn about this different kind of  (“making” the case) skill.  (Find Us)

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if
    it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed
    and she has 83 views. I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!
