Summary
Explore the crime lab with Forensics and discover how detectives use science to solve crimes. From the scene of the crime to a criminal's conviction, discover how the marks of blood, footprints, and fingerprints can lead the police to criminals. Find out how specialists can match trace evidence, such as a single hair found on a victim, to the murderer. Learn how famous crimes were solved and, like a true detective, find out whether it was arson, poison, or murder
