The study of a crime and how it was committed
A Crime Scene
Evidence. What is it? How do you find it?
Who are the people involved?
Many people believe that there is only one type of forensic scientist, but there are actually numerous groups of workers involved. Each person in the crime lab has a different job to do. For example, pathologists check a victim's body temperature to tell when or how he or she died, serologists study blood samples and DNA to identify a killer, and anthropologists identify victims who are buried or burned, using different body parts as a tool. There are many others involved in solving a case, each with their own versatility and resourcefulness.
