This book is a revised, updated, and somewhat expanded version of the original report light Characteristics and Stain Patterns of Human Blood” submitted to the LEAA (Law Enforcement Assistance Office). Those of us who have used the original report will be pleased with this updated and expanded edition. About half of the book is devoted to basic concepts in blood pattern interpretation and characteristics of liquid and dried blood. The other half consists of figures, diagrams, photos, and an appendix. New references were added. Of particular value are those court decisions on bloodstain evidence.
