WARMUP!!!!!

  • When I graduate from high school I want to…….


Unit 3

UNIT 3

IMPRESSION EVIDENCE


What causes impression evidence

What Causes Impression Evidence????

  • When one object presses hard against another object and leaves an indentation or print


What kind of impression evidence can you think of

What kind of impression evidence can you think of?


Warmup

Tire tracks


Footprints

Footprints


Bite marks

BITE MARKS


Tool marks

TOOL MARKS


Best way to view an impression

Best way to view an impression…

  • Making a cast!!!!

  • For example, a trip to the dentist……


You all have had one of these done before

You all have had one of these done before??


What happens

What happens??

  • An impression is made…. This would be your tire tracks, foot prints, etc

  • Then it is filled with a plaster that is mixed up

  • This is allowed to dry and it pulled out of the impression

  • THEN YOU END UP WITH…..


Warmup

YOUR MOLD/ CAST


Todays focus

TODAYS FOCUS

  • TIRE TRACKS!!!!!!


Why is tire track evidence so hard

Why is tire track evidence so hard?????

  • Because there are so many cars that are similar!!!!


Warmup

Police have to go in and find that specific car that matches those tracks, but that’s a big job to narrow down.


Tire track evidence consists of

Tire track evidence consists of….

  • Tire track width

  • Wheelbase dimensions

  • Turning diameter

  • Relative positions of turning tracks


Recovery

RECOVERY

  • Tire impressions must be:

    • Photographed from all angles with and without measurement tool (ruler)

    • Cast – a 3 foot impression requires 15-25 pounds of dental stone

    • Measured – width, length and depth

    • Direction of travel noted

    • Impressions made if possible, and

    • Pictures of the source (tire) must be included for comparison


Comparisons

COMPARISONS

  • Tire tread examinations compare the tire impressions recovered from scene with tires taken from a known vehicle

  • Two categories of tires:

    • Suspect - Vehicle of suspect

    • Elimination - Vehicles of police, ambulance, etc

  • All tires should be seized from suspect vehicle for comparison


Comparisons1

COMPARISONS

  • Forensic examination begins with visual comparison and elimination of tires which do not match impression

  • Forensic examination continues with full circumference test impressions

  • Impressions are superimposed on known impression over cast or original tire


So what did we learn already

So what did we learn already??

  • Tire tracks would be considered what type of evidence???

  • CLASS!!!!


Tire tracks can be individualized how

Tire tracks can be individualized how????

  • Wear marks

  • Nails in tires

  • Patching

  • Gravel

  • Skidding caused by sudden stops

Warmup

Your group will need to document the tread patterns for each vehicle.

Tire Track Lab

Step 1: Get a large piece of white paper from your teacher, an ink pad, paper towels, and a ruler. You will also need a pen or pencil.

Step 2: Gently roll a car over the ink pad several times to cover all the sides of the tires.

Step 3: Gently roll the car on the white paper for a length of 5-6” and label the tracks with the car’s letter.

Caution: You will want to apply enough pressure to get a good impression, but not too hard that you cause damage to the vehicle, its tires, or the ink pad.

Step 4: Roll the car on a piece of paper towel to remove excess ink and then pass it along to another group.

Step 5: Analyze the tire tracks to identify unique characteristics, such as blank spots, evidence of tire wear, width of the track, etc. Use a highlighter to mark each characteristic you find.


Warmup

Tire Track Challenge

Work with your investigative team to identify each set of tracks shown on your worksheet.

Compare the tracks you made earlier and match them to the suspect tracks on the worksheet. Once you have identified all the cars, have your answers checked by your teacher.

Ready?

Set?

GO!


Warmup1

WARMUP

  • Why are tire tracks so hard to trace to a source? What would make them easier to link to a suspect’s vehicle?


Unit 3 day 2

UNIT 3: DAY 2

FOOT PRINTS!!!!!


What are footprints

What are footprints??

  • Impression left in the Earth after someone walks on it.


What can footprints tell us about a crime

What can footprints tell us about a crime???

  • Direction of approach and departure

  • Point of entry and exit

  • Mode of entry

  • Sequence of events that took place


How long can footprints last

How long can footprints last?

  • Couple of minutes to hundred of years…..

  • So what type of evidence can a footprint be??

    TRANSIENT!!!!!


Footprints can be 2d or 3d

Footprints Can Be 2D or 3D


Things prosecution looks for when examining footprints

Things Prosecution Looks for When Examining Footprints

  • The walk or gait of the person who left the footprints,

  • Sole or heel indents

  • Cuts or the tread of a shoe, and

  • Other signs of wear associated with a shoe.


Warmup

  • Investigators can determine a person’s size and the speed (Running or walking) they were going


Warmup

Gait

  • A manner of walking or moving on foot. It can be as individualized as your personality.


Three things are needed to actually use footprints to convict someone

Three things are needed to actually use footprints to convict someone….

  • A photography, plater mold, or print of the original and un-tainted footprint,

  • The actual shoe or mold of a foot that belongs to the defendant and the prosecution believes matches the one at the crime scene

  • An expert witness that can testify to the connection between the two beyond a reasonable doubt.

LAB

  • FOOTPRINT CASTING

  • MEASUREMENTS


Directions

DIRECTIONS

  • Meaure length of shoe you’re wearing by standing on ruler

  • Have someone measure your height

  • Collect similar data from your classmates

  • Plot height (y axis) against shoe length (x axis). One set for males, one set for females


Questions to consider

Questions to Consider

  • Is there a correlation between shoe length and height?

  • How could investigators utilize this information?

  • What steps would a detective take to determine who a suspect is based on footprints?

UNIT 3: DAY 3

Tool Marks


What causes tool marks

What causes tool marks??

Tools can be classified two ways

Tools Can Be Classified Two Ways

  • Impression

  • Scratches


Class and individualized characteristics

  • Class- Size and shape of tool.

  • Individualized- As tool is used more it becomes worn and damaged

Warmup

Goal: Your group will need to examine and document the tool marks made by each of the tools.

Tool Marks Lab

At each station, you will need to:

 1 – To prepare for the lab, roll the modeling clay into a flat circle that fits inside the plastic plate. Make several impressions of each tool in your slab of modeling clay.

2 – Use the ruler to record the measurements for each tool and its impression surfaces.

3 – Document any unique characteristics you notice on each tool or its impression. Write your observations on your worksheet.

4 – After you have documents both of the tools at that station, roll the clay into a ball to prepare for the next group and wait until it's time to rotate to the next station.

  • Features to analyze:

  • Dimensions of the impression

  • Ridges or striation patterns

  • Defects, such as nicks and chips

  • Paint chips or metal shards left on a tool

Warmup

Tool Mark Challenge

Work with your investigative team to identify the crime scene tools.

Compare the tool marks you made earlier and match them to the crime scene tools. Once you have identified all the tools, have your answers checked by your teacher. Keep trying until you have them all correct!

On your mark?
