Murder most foul


  • Solving the crime

  • Evidence

  • The Verdict

  • Reflections

Solving the crime
Solving the crime

  • Most difficult task: To find a link from the various evidences

  • Easiest task: The lab work where the evidences were identified and analyzed

  • Task Worked: Looking from different perspectives and identifying reliable statements

  • Did not work: Questioning the same suspects

    • Suspects would lie and not tell the truth.

    • The leads would get us nowhere.


  • The media: Aims

    • To earn profits

    • To be the first to publish

    • Increase profits (Sensationalize stories)

      • Readers like to read exciting news

    • Interest/attract readers

      • Fabricate facts

  • Media Source:

    • Not helpful

    • Misleading information (Lead us off-track)

    • Unreliable

What we learnt
What we learnt

  • Able to identify false and true testimonies

  • Able to find links based on evidence

  • Able to find flaws in information

  • Able to source out useful information from others


  • Fingerprints look similar to the naked eye

  • It would be more accurate if more matches can be found

  • Avoid prosecuting the wrong person and letting the guilty escaping

  • 8 matches are required to be submitted as evidence


  • Dramatic forensic science

  • According to CSI, evidence is perfect and easily identifiable

  • In reality, according to Locard’s Principle, evidence is contaminated and may even contain traces of people who have no link to the crime but have been in contact with it


  • It aims to attract viewers to the show to increase profits

  • Does not showcase authentic forensic science such as the procedure and tools

  • CSI cannot be trusted completely

  • CSI movies only require a few fingerprints to prove the suspect guilty but however, in the real case, investigators require 8 matches in Australia to prove guilty.

Lip print classification system
Lip Print Classification System

  • Classification system for lip print is similar to a fingerprint’s

  • Able to identify corresponding points on lips

    • Such as forks line and vertical lines

  • Must have a minimum number of matches
