    Abstract

    Because the perpetrator of a physical offense often places his hands on the victim during the commission of the crime, the successful recovery of identifiable latent finger, palm, or other prints from the victim's body would in many cases constitute the most conclusive physical evidence possible. Investigators of crimes against persons, therefore, have long sought physical evidence techniques that would allow such an identification, thus definitely indicating the criminal's presence and perhaps suggesting the criminal's activity during or after the crime. Historically, such techniques have only been successful under experimental conditions.
