9780123820006: Forensic Dental Evidence, Second Edition: An Investigator's Handbook

Forensic Dental Evidence, Second Edition provides the base for investigating, identifying and processing forensic dental evidence. This edition leads off with an explanation of dental nomenclature and quickly advances to the newest developments in trace dental evidence, methods for trace DNA evidence, and mass disaster cases (9/11, Bali, Thailand). Bowers covers how digital imaging of evidence has assisted in cases where incarcerated individuals have been exonerated. This volume provides the necessary tools and practical suggestions for forensic scientists and investigators charged with analysis of a crime scene. With an emphasis on the proper use of scientific methods, knowledge of analytical limitations and the necessity for team training, planning and multi-level management, Forensic Dental Evidence, Second Edition provides invaluable practical information. Contemporary cases and interesting historic cases, including an Egyptian mummy and Adolf Hitler, demonstrate relevant case methods.

This is a must-have resource for forensic scientists and law enforcement involved in processing crime scenes and conducting criminal investigations. This book will serve as an excellent reference for medical examiners, forensic pathologists, defense and prosecuting attorneys and crime scene investigators who need the latest in forensic information.

* Contributions by internationally recognized and experienced forensic experts cover missing persons cases and mass disaster cases from around the world

* Contains over 200 full-color photographs of crime scene evidence, human identification cases and bitemark details, also included on a companion Web site

* Includes many new exoneration cases derived from the Editor's work with the Innocence Project
