Description

Murder is among the most common and most terrible of crimes. Motives for murder include anger, love, greed, hatred, and myriad other emotions and reasons, some passionate, some cold-blooded and calculated. ""Homicide"" investigates the nature of murder throughout history and tracks the progress of law enforcement in preventing and solving killings. Although modern police rely on a wealth of sophisticated tools, such as fingerprinting, DNA analysis, and computer databases, to solve murders, these techniques were not always available to detectives. This intriguing book demonstrates how murders are investigated, using real-life cases to illustrate key points.Chapters include: Homicide: As Old as Civilization; The Statistics and the Crimes; Homicide Investigation at the Crime Scene; The Homicide Victim; and Using the Evidence to Convict a Suspect.
