Cracking Cases: The Science of Solving Crimes by Henry C. Lee

This book will take the reader through the entire investigative process of five murder cases, with Dr Lee as the tour guide. The cases include: the O J Simpson case, in which Dr Lees analysis of the blood evidence at the crime scene revealed that the Los Angeles Police Department had missed several blood drops on the back of Nicole Simpson, a footprint belonging to a second possible assailant, and the physical improbability of Mr Simpsons climbing a fence to return to his home; the woodchipper murder, in which an Eastern Airlines pilot murdered his wife and then put her body through a woodchipper in an attempt to dispose of the remains; the Mathison murder, in which a veteran Hawaiian police sergeant claimed to have accidentally run over his wife after she fled the family van during a dispute; the Ed Sherman murder, in which a college English professor attempted to disguise the time of his wifes death by turning up the air conditioning unit in their house and then using the alibi that he was away from the home sailing on the day the crime allegedly took place; and the McArthur murder, in which a police sergeant shot and killed his wife, but then tried to make it appear that she had accidentally killed herself. In each case, Dr Lee presents in scientific detail how he investigated the murders, analyzed the evidence, and used techniques thatplayed a critical role in bringing criminals to justice. He discusses how the criminologist examines blood spatter evidence and uses blood identification, DNA analysis, and other forensic technologies developed in the worlds best laboratories. This is a fascinating insiders look by a world-renowned expert into the pursuit of justice in some of the most grizzly criminal cases of recent times.
