Parents not the only ones affected by infidelity – kids can be crushed
"Speaking from experience, you are both very right. Although I was the oldest of four and managed better than my siblings, the
pain lasts a lifetime. The other three were crushed almost out of existence and my younger brother died way before he should have.
They never recovered from the devastation, the ensuing violence, but worst of all, the lack of trust for others in almost every relationship. "

Reviewing and Understanding Autopsy Reports
A Pursuit Magazine Article - By Dean A. Beers
In order to understand the importance of the autopsy report, and how to interpret it, you should understand how all the other factors influence the report and why you cannot rely on the autopsy report alone. ‘Autopsy’ is from the Greek ‘autopsia’, meaning ‘to see with one’s own eyes’. The following discussion will dissect the autopsy report and supporting death investigation in order to allow the professional Legal Investigator to view death and non-death cases ‘with one’s own eyes.

An Artchix Magazine Cover Feature Story-Upstairs In The West Wing Of The White House-By Ralph Thomas

Digital Forensics in Anticipation of Litigation
Pursuit Magazine Article - by L. Scott Harrell
Computers and the nearly ubiquitous smart phones (iPhones, BlackBerries, devices using the Palm and Android operating system, etc.) have become indispensable communication devices in today’s digitally connected society. An endless torrent of electronic information that makes possible telephone calls, email, text messaging and Internet access passes through a vast network supporting these devices. The data comes in staggering quantities and is in a constant state of creation, modification, exchange and storage. Not surprisingly, this technology that facilitates communication and the instantaneous sharing of information is frequently used for illegal and unethical purposes. As a result, it is obvious to the modern legal professional that the information contained in computers, mobile phones, personal data assistants and a myriad of other electronic devices is increasingly playing a major role in legal matters. Oftentimes, these devices will contain pivotal evidence in a case.
