This presentation also transitions into the investigation of deaths that occur in water. Deaths in the water, whether at home or on a lake, etc., are generally thought of as accidents. A major focus of this lecture is to move all investigators into the mindset that any death should be thought of as a homicide until evidence to the contrary is uncovered. A fluid crime scene is very difficult to search and to control. General search techniques are covered so that the investigator will understand what the dive team is doing underwater.
Funding for this Forensic Technology Center of Excellence event has been provided by the National Institute of Justice.
