Cj210 Unit 5 Assignment

Unit 2 Assignment: Ramsey 2 Evidence can be divided into two categories: Physical and Testimonial. Physical evidence is “also referred to as real evidence, consists of tangible articles such as hairs, fibers, latent fingerprints and biological material.” (NFSTC, 2007) Testimonial evidence by the same source is defined as statements or the spoken word from the victim(s) or witness(es). Evidence helps investigators to recreate a crime scene to tell what happened, or as some would say, tell a story. There are many different types of evidence, but the four I choose for this assignment are: Glass, fingerprints, impression evidence, and fracture patterns. I chose these types of evidence because in the Ramsey case, there are traces of all these different types of evidence. Glass is technically defined as “The inorganic product of fusion which has cooled to a rigid condition without crystallizing” (ASTM C162-05) To have a window broken anywhere in a house and it not be fixed in winter is not normal for most. That would have been a key piece of evidence to look into. This would have given them a time frame as to when that window ws really broken, and also help determine if the breakage of that window, had anything to do with what lead to the death of the little Jon Benet Ramsey.

Unit 7 Assignment “Bobby Frank” 2 Bobby Frank Unit 7 Assignment The case of Bobby Frank is a sad story, about being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

There is controversy among the different versions of the story, that Frank was hit several times over the head, but nothing in any of the stories I read, that say exactly if he was hit with that chisel, or something else. “What occurred in a homicide may be determined from the kind of injury inflicted on the victim.” (Osterburg, 2012) In the case studies provided by Osterburg, there are really no details as to what the characteristics would be for a chisel type of wound. According to Osterburg, a wound is defined as “the result of a blunt or a sharp force. A wound is an injury—especially one in which the skin is pierced, cut, torn, or otherwise broken; however, a wound need not necessarily have open skin.” (Osterburg, 2012) A bullet, a bludgeon, and a sharp weapon produce visibly different injuries. A chisel in my opinion would be described as a sharp object depending on how it is used. In this case it would cause trauma. Trauma is defined as “the result of any force—blunt, sharp, or penetrating. A knife or ice pick produces incisions; even a dull axe leaves
