    Abstract

    The successful development of latent prints on human skin would be of great use to the law enforcement officer in the investigation of crimes in which the subject has touched the victim. The iodine-silver plate transfer method has shown promising results in the development of such impressions from both live and cadaveric human skin. Numerous police agencies in the United States and Canada are presently experimenting with this process; it is still in the research stage and consequently has not been used in the investigation of an actual case.
