See how detectives can be working on fingerprints within hours of them being found

Detectives in West Yorkshire can now be working on fingerprints and footprints within hours of forensic scientists lifting them from a crime scene.

The remarkable breakthrough which can massively speed up investigations has been revealed by West Yorkshire Police.

It is part of a £4m project to make big improvements in the speed at which key evidence is made ready for examination.

The two-year project to introduce digital transmission of forensic evidence has been led by the Regional Scientific Support Services (RSSS) for the four police forces covering Yorkshire and Humber – including West Yorkshire police – with Home Office funding.

Detectives testify in Nolen case about what they saw following …

NORMAN — More testimony in the first-degree murder case against Alton Nolen continued Tuesday, including the testimony of two Moore Police detectives who documented the crime scene.

Moore Police Det. Jeff Griffin, who also serves as a crime scene investigator for Moore PD, testified that the head of Colleen Hufford, the woman Nolen, 33, is accused of killing Sept. 25, 2014, was found a couple of feet from her body. He also said Hufford didn’t go out without a fight.

“There were significant cuts to Hufford’s hands that were consistent with defensive-type wounds,” he said.

Griffin said blood from the 8-inch kitchen knife that is believed to be the weapon involved in the attack at Vaughan Foods had blood that matched the DNA profiles of Hufford and survivor Traci Johnson.

Though the scene outside of Vaughan Foods wasn’t as gruesome as it was inside, Moore police officer Nathan Wells said it wasn’t any less
