Death Investigator’s Handbook quickly became an essential addition to every law enforcement library when it was first published in 1993. Ten years later, veteran homicided investigator Louis Eliopulos completely updated and expanded it to include all the latest scientific and technological advances in the field of death investigations, including DNA, cold cases, bioterrorism, mass-disaster sites, trace evidence recovery, profiling secrets, and much more.
To make his manual even handier for working professionals we have divided it into three separate volumes: crime scenes, investigations, and scientific investigations—making it easier to take the appropriate section into the field, the interrogation room, or the lab. And it also means that more people can use the manual at the same time.
Volume three includes 17 chapters on scientific investigations, including:
- DNA Procedures
- Requesting a Pathologist at a Death Scene
- The Forensic Autopsy
- Autopsy References
- The Purpose of an Autopsy in an Apparent Homicide
- Forensic Odontology
- AFBO Bitemark Methodology Guidelines
- Drugs of Abuse
- Common Prescription Medications
- Medical Examiner and Coroner Systems
- Trace Evidence and Other Crime Lab Exams
- Conversion Charts
