    Abstract

    A case study of an abrasive safe cutting is presented. The suspects were linked to the offense by the characteristics of two abrasive discs in their possession and debris collected from their clothes. Experiments of abrasive and oxygen cutting of steel were carried out. It was found that some characteristics may distinguish between debris of the two processes.
