What physical evidence was related to the case?

We learn the backstory of a head of police; his daughter was also abducted and killed many years ago. As the film moves forward, we are led to believe that the drug lord took the girl in revenge, but we soon discover that it was in fact the head of police, caring for the girl and protecting her from harm. The main investigator, who makes this discovery, is caught in a moral dilemma, but chooses to return the girl to her rightful family, and abide by the law. This sparks many questions about what we ourselves would do in this situation, and how we would react. Do you return the girl, to her loving yet broken and unstable family clouded with drugs?
The Basics of Fingerprint Identification When we speak about fingerprint recognition or authentication of fingerprints, it involves various automated methods of verifying match between the fingerprints of two human beings. In fact, fingerprints are regarded as one of the forms of biometrics that are used for identification of individuals and verify their individual identity. Global Versus Local Features When it comes to analysis of the characteristics of the fingerprints, there are mainly two types of characteristics that are analyzed for identification of the individuals – Global Features and the Local features. Global features are certain characteristics that can be seen and gauged in the naked eye. They include the basic patterns of ridge,

It was DNA evidence that led to a conviction in the 1998 murder case of 10-year-old Anna Palmer who was attacked and killed outside of her own front door in Salt Lake City. The crime was heinous, and included multiple stab wounds to her body, but following the crime, investigators had no witnesses, little evidence, and no apparent suspects, the news station reports. However, in 2009, forensic analysts were called in to assist in the case, and they decided to examine the girl’s fingernails for DNA samples. Using visible and alternative light sources to look for DNA not belonging to the girl, they made a hit, and matched it to a man named Matthew Brock, who had lived a block away at the time of the her murder and was age nineteen then. Brock was already in prison serving a ten year sentence for a sex related crime with a child, and he pled guilty in 2011 to an aggravated murder charge in the death of Anna Palmer and is now in prison for life.
1.1 depicts one illustration of the palmprint recognition system. Note that there is an extra point localizer of wrinkles and principle lines in palmprint recognition system. Because of all types of the modifications that may exist in the image, the line detector typically generates only a rough points of the palm. In order to identify the accurate position of the lines for palmprint recognition, developer usually exploits the locations of both lines and marks for help. In this system, all the three functional modules such as palm scanner, line localizer, and identifier track the feature extractor as well as pattern recognizer
Introduction Forensic science has evolved into a necessity for the criminal justice world. Before the development of forensic science, many of the cases heavily relied upon confessions and testimonies of the witnesses. Forensic science has given police officers the ability to efficiently and effectively collect, analyze, and process evidence. Without forensic science, criminals would be committing the same crimes repeatedly. While criminals get more creative, the criminal justice system and forensic science specialists have to update the techniques and tools that are used while obtaining evidence for the new crimes.
