Application of Trace Evidence in the Forensic Medical Examination
The statistics in this paper were based on the classification, lifting, general detection, and results of instrument analysis of trace evidence (354 samples) in 211 cases involving homicide, suicide, rape, and traffic accidents which were handled in our institute since 1982. The study showed that trace evidence plays a critical role in crime investigation. We expect the application of trace evidence to be further developed and more widely used by our colleagues in the forensic science community.
