    Abstract

    The examination of damage to multiple layers of clothing of an attempted murder victim is described. The large number of cuts to the garments, the multiple layers and the varying types of fabric composing these garments gave valuable information as to the possible implement causing the damage. The results also show that some types of material may better reflect the geometry of the suspect weapon than others.
