    Abstract

    “You have testified that the hair found at the scene of the crime is similar to those of the accused's scalp. What are the chances that it could have originated from someone else?” This familiar question is frequently asked examiners presenting hair evidence in court. It was in an attempt to answer such questions that this study was begun.
