Duration: 2 hours
Dr. Leon Higley’s work to characterize blow-fly species indicates that there is variation within a single population--the bell curve is wide. Dr. Higley will share his research and discuss how the science is challenging some notions about PMI analysis.
Dr. Higley is focused on science that adds rigor and quality to the courtroom testimony of PMI experts. He will discuss his research in the context of how science is challenging notions. Ultimately, his research may impact the establishment of science-based maxima and minima in establishing PMI estimates in forensics.
This is the second webinar of a two-part series on PMI.
