Serial Killers - A Homicide Detective's Take
It was during my tenure of over 20 years as a homicide Detective and Detective Sergeant with the Miami Police Department that I investigated six serial murder cases. I like to think that the experience I gained in those investigations has given me a most rudimentary glimmer of understanding as to what motivates a serial killer in undertaking his atrocities
By Lieutenant Nelson Andreu (Retired) - Miami Police Department. An Expert Law Article

Responding to A Suspect’s Request to See Evidence During an Interrogation
It is rare to conduct an interrogation under circumstances where the investigator has absolute proof of the suspect’s guilt. At the outset of most interrogations there is merely circumstantial or testimonial evidence which points to a suspect’s probable involvement in the crime. The purpose for the interrogation is two fold: First, it is an attempt to learn the truth from the suspect, i.e., did this person really commit the crime? Second, If the suspect does confess, the investigator must then develop details about the suspect’s crime to corroborate the confession and to be used as evidence in a court of law. A John Reid Article.

Spyware: What You Need to Know
Internet users hear about the dangers of spyware all the time. But what are these vile applications that install themselves on computers and web browsers, and what can a person do to avoid or eradicate them? By Kim Zetter- A Wired News story

When Is Force Excessive?
The U.S. Supreme Court recently revisited the issue of excessive force and provided a significant ruling. By By Thomas D. Petrowski

Building the Investigative Practice
In addition to legal and insurance clientele, the investigator seeking clients on a continuing basis (and this is the best way to develop a long term business) should plan to to market to the corporate world. You see, the business of business has become getting information on someone else's business; rivals competitors and their key employees. by Edmund J. Pankau

The Admissibility of Digital Photographs in Court
When digital imaging is considered for law enforcement, the concern of the admissibility of digital photographic evidence in court is often raised. The fact that digital photographs are more easily altered than film-based photographs is usually cited. Some even believe digital photographs are not admissible in court. This article is presented in the hope of clearing up some of the confusion and misinformation about this issue. We will begin with the rules of evidence regarding digital evidence. By by Steven B. Staggs

Reading Email Headers
This document is intended to provide a comprehensive introduction to the behavior of email headers. It is primarily intended to help victims of unsolicited email ("email spam") attempting to determine the real source of the (generally forged) email that plagues them; it should also help in attempts to understand any other forged email. It may also be beneficial to readers interested in a general-purpose introduction to mail transfer on the Internet.

The Importance of a Written Statement
An employee has been interviewed and interrogated concerning the issue of falsifying time card entries. At the conclusion of the interrogation the investigator brings in a witness who is told that the employee admitted that he falsified his time card on several occasions in the last six months. However, no written statement is taken from the employee. The employee is terminated for time theft and files a wrongful discharge suit, which also alleges slander, emotional distress and discrimination. When this case goes to court the company has nothing whatsoever in writing from the ex-employee indicating any act of wrongdoing. He is bound to deny acknowledging the time card violations and the result of the trial will rest on the investigator's credibility when he testifies that the subject did make incriminating statements. A John Reid Article.

Tape Recording Conversions And The Law
At first, the question of whether or not to tape record a phone call seems like a matter of personal preference. Some journalists see taping as an indispensable tool, while others don t like the formality it may impose during an interview. Some would not consider taping a call without the subject s consent, others do it routinely. However, there are important questions of law that must be addressed first. Both federal and state statutes govern the use of electronic recording equipment. The unlawful use of such equipment can give rise not only to a civil suit by the "injured" party, but also criminal prosecution.

The First One
I was still in the new job daze. My body was not used to getting up at 6 in the morning so that I could be at work by 7. The brain was clouded with all the information I was trying to comprehend and techniques I was trying to learn. By the time it was 3, I was just ready to drive home, hit the bed, and fall off to sleep. - By by Jason Myers -Crime Scene Investigator- Independence Missouri Police Department.

I've Got My Eye On You!
The twenty-first century is filled with many new gadgets and technological innovations. At first glance, our society may appear to be rather advanced. However, looks can be deceiving. In reality, we are only at the forefront of what is in store for the near future. With the passing of each day, we may not know it, but our lives are becoming
more and more digitized. A fully paperless society is on the horizon. As the digital world ushers itself in it will become important for one to protect his/her identity and privacy from those lurking in the
distance. By Robert B. Fried, BS, MS

Reducing a Guilty Suspect’s Resistance to Confessing
Investigators who understand and apply criminological theories may develop more convincing themes during interrogations, resulting in more confessions. -By Brian Parsi Boetig

Out On Assignment, Investigator Charged With Stalking

State law allows licensed investigators to conduct surveillance, but it also can prohibit alleged abusers from contacting victims - even through third parties.

Libby Indicted In CIA Leak Case
Two-year probe nails Vice President Cheney's top aide. Vice President Dick Cheney's top aide was indicted today on perjury, false statement, and obstruction of justice charges in connection with a special counsel's probe into the leaking of a CIA officer's identity. A copy of the five-count felony indictment returned against I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Cheney's chief of staff, can be found below (click anywhere on a page to move to forward in the document). The 55-year-old Libby, a White House power and proponent of the Iraq war, allegedly committed the crimes when questioned by Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald before a federal grand jury and in FBI interviews. During two grand jury appearances last March, Libby was questioned extensively about his contact with several reporters prior to published disclosures about Valerie Plame Wilson, the CIA operative. While not charged today, Karl Rove, President George W. Bush's chief political adviser, remains under scrutiny by Fitzgerald, who reportedly plans to continue his probe of the 2003 leak (the original grand jury panel's term expired today). Libby today resigned his White House post as a result of the criminal charges, which were handed up in U.S. District Court in Washington. He faces up to 30 years in prison and a $1.25 million fine if convicted of all counts. (22 pages) A Smoking Gun Presentation.
