Former crime scene investigator gives forensics and 3-D laser systems presentation

A former crime scene investigator, Ryan Rezelle, spoke about how technology affects investigations, the process of crime scenes and his work as an investigator Monday in the Science Hall.

Most people don’t have a clear understanding of what crime scene investigators (CSI) do, Rezelle said. 

 “It’s been fictionalized so much by television that I really haven’t got a chance to share what this is all about,” Rezelle said. 

In his presentation he discussed what it means to be a CSI and how technology such as the 3-D laser systems can help that field in getting a basic layout of a large area including distinct measurements.

“I was really excited when Ryan agreed to do our seminar,” said Melissa Bailey, director of the master of science forensic science program. “I knew he was going to do a great presentation though.  He’s got tons of stories

Widow of former Albany detective plans to file lawsuit

After losing her husband in the line of duty, the widow of a former Albany detective is speaking out. Linda Mayville claims the city isn’t providing her with the benefits she’s entitled to following her husband’s death nearly four years ago.

Mayville is seeking legal counsel and plans to file a lawsuit against the city of Albany if Mayor Kathy Sheehan doesn’t respond by Friday.

In 2008, Linda’s husband, Douglas Mayville, was diagnosed with Wegener’s granulomatosis, and what followed was a lengthy and gruesome medical battle, which has turned into a legal dispute. Mayville served the city as a police officer and later as a crime scene investigator from 1982 to 1997. During those 16 years, the nature of his work led to an exposure of toxic chemicals which would ultimately lead to a painful autoimmune disease known as Wegener’s disease.

According to the State of New York Workers’ Compensation Board, Mayville died

If you’ve ever wanted to collect fingerprints, analyze bloodstain patterns and solve murder mysteries alongside a former Texas Ranger, Baylor has a club for you.

The Baylor forensic society provides students education, training and hands-on experience with different scientific techniques used in forensic investigations, as well as fellowship and networking with others interested in the field.

“We have biweekly meetings and events at each meeting where we go into a certain subject within forensic science,” Austin junior and forensic society vice president Janie Contreras said. “At this week’s meeting we’ll be fingerprinting.

Former FBI agent, his daughter found guilty of murdering her husband

A former FBI agent and his daughter today were found guilty of killing the daughter’s husband.

A Davidson County, North Carolina, jury found Thomas Martens, 67, who worked with the FBI for over 30 years, and his 33-year-old daughter, Molly Corbett, guilty of second-degree murder in the death of Corbett’s 39-year-old husband, Jason Corbett, meaning they unanimously believed that Jason Corbett had been killed out of malice. Molly Corbett and Martens both claimed self-defense and that they acted in defense of each other.

When the verdict was announced, Molly Corbett was heard saying, “I’m really sorry to my mom, he should have just killed me.”

Today, both received the same sentence of a minimum of 20 years in prison and a maximum of 25 years, which had been recommended by the prosecution.

Former medical examiner testifies in Margate…

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A former medical examiner is testifying for the defense Friday in the murder trial of a South Florida man accused of killing his girlfriend.

Richard Patterson, 65, of Margate, is charged with second-degree murder in the choking death of his girlfriend, Francisca Marquinez, 60, in 2015.

Patterson’s attorney claims his client accidentally choked Marquinez during oral sex. To prove it, attorney Ken Padowitz wants a Broward County judge to allow Patterson to show his penis to the jury.

Before Judge Lisa Porter makes her decision, she first wanted to hear testimony from Dr. Ronald Wright, a former Broward County medical examiner.

The prosecution rested its case Thursday after jurors heard testimony from Patterson’s daughter, his ex-girlfriend, an associate medical examiner who performed Marquinez’s autopsy and a crime scene investigator.

Wright said he agreed with the assessment of associate medical examiner Iouri Boiko, who said the manner of death was inconclusive because of
