Have you ever wondered how crime scene investigations actually work? At this Science on Tap, join Rod Englert of Englert Forensic Consultants as he takes you behind the scenes and explains how homicide investigations can test the limits of an investigator’s power of observation, intuitive thinking, and creative ability. He will walk you through the evidence of a homicide scene and show you how “everything means something.” Many case studies will be discussed including high-profile and controversial murders where evidence can often be “the devil in the details.”
