Crime Scene Reconstructionist

In reconstructing a crime scene (that is, determining the sequence of events that constituted it), the first step is usually to reconstruct the physical appearance of the scene. I describe the process in my book Crime Science: Methods of Forensic Detection (co-author John F. Fischer). In the series of photos here, I am reconstructing the scene in a questioned-death case in Mt. Sterling, Ky. (I was recommended to the victim's family attorney by the police homicide commander in Lexington, Ky., in 1990.) (See also Homicide Investigator, and Forensic Anthropology Assistant.)
