About the book:

Learn the techniques and procedures to catch killers in Practical Homicide Investigation, the trusted "bible" used by thousands of law enforcement professionals across the country and around the world. Now the new Third Edition includes even more information - more photographs, more illustrations, more checklists, more case studies, and more protocols - than ever before.

75% OF THE MATERIAL IS REVISED AND EXPANDED!

Virtually all of the chapters from the second edition have been updated in the new Third Edition. The chapters on sex-related homicide investigation and criminal profiling have been greatly expanded, enabling the investigator to recognize the different classifications of sex-related death to make an early assessment of possible suspects. New chapters deal with sensitive psychological issues such as death notification of the surviving families of homicide victims and the dynamics of suicide. Scientific advances in areas such as DNA technology are addressed. For the benefit of police administrators, the chapter on management has been restructured to provide guidance on the makeup and mission of the homicide investigative unit. This chapter also includes a section on putting together an Apprehension Team for arresting homicide fugitives.

480 PHOTOGRAPHS AND ILLUSTRATIONS, 24 FULL-COLOR INSERTS, AND 90 CASE STUDIES!

The book includes numerous photographs, illustrations, and case studies depicting exactly what to look for and how to interpret a crime scene. New photographs of wound structure and injury aid the investigator in properly assessing the mode of death. The 24 color photographs graphically illustrate morphologic changes in the decomposing human body, and include examples of defense wounds, insect infestation, lividity, and wound structure. "Before and after" photographs of crime scenes treated with Luminol and victims treated with Toluidine blue illustrate the use of these chemicals in making invisible evidence visible to the naked eye.

INCLUDES ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW TO CONDUCT A THOROUGH HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION

In the tradition of the best-selling previous editions, the Third Edition continues to be the encyclopedic source book on homicide investigation. It combines a straightforward presentation of detailed techniques with factual, instructive case studies. It stresses the basics, indicates the practicalities of certain investigative techniques, and provides patterns upon which to build a solid foundation for a prosecutable case. Practical Homicide Investigation, Third Edition is the indispensable guide for students of criminalistics, as well as for professionals involved in homicide investigation.
