the details included in a evidence log include all evidence taken from the scene, important leads form witnesses, and any details on people or things found at a crime scene.
How does the intensity of an interaction affect the amount of material exchanged?
it effects it because if it is a little crime like stealing a candy bar then there is going to be little to know material exchange other than the candy bar but if it is something like murder then more materials will be exchanged because of the intensity of the crime
Who are the people involved in a crime scene investigation, and what does each person do?
One person is the image taker and takes images of the crime for further investigation. there is the data collector that gets information from witnesses. there is the evidence collector who collects samples from the scene that could be important in finding the person who commented the crime. and an evidence reviewer who takes the evidence and reviews it to find the accused
Types of evidence
Define trace evidence, and give several examples.
Specific types of trace materials that could be transferred during a violent crime.human hair, animal hair,and fabric, rope, soil, glass, and building materials.
