You know all about laser lights, luminol, DNA, fingerprints, and bullet trajectory, right? Well, how about taking a peek at the unusual crime-scene tools we’ve dug up for today’s post. It’s a piece of cake to solve a murder with these cool toys.
Blood spatter heads are often used by law-enforcement to re-enact crime-scene scenarios. The heads are designed to reproduce patterns of blood spatter caused by bludgeoning or gunshots. The top portion of the heads are made from a wax-like material that’s filled with simulated blood. Visit the link below to view a video demonstration. (Warning – Not for the faint of heart!)
Forensic mannequins are sometimes used to re-create murder scenes. They’re also used for training purposes.
Forensic skeletons are used for training crime scene investigators. These skeletons are made from plastic and then stained to give the impression of aging.
The Third Hand is used by crime scene investigators for picking up bottles without damaging or destroying evidence on the surface of the containers.
Evidence rollers are used to collect trace evidence from a variety of surfaces, such as floors, walls, and bed spreads and sheets. The sticky roller covers are replaceable.
