Revamp Crime Scene Investigation Procedure, Use Technology: SC to Govt

New Delhi: Underscoring the importance of technology in criminal investigation, the Supreme Court has asked the Central government to consider a rehaul of crime scene investigation procedure by making digital photography and videography a must.

According to the Court, the digital photographs and videos should be recorded without delay and must be shared across various police stations on a real time basis so as to make criminal investigation sharper and faster.

“We have seen how Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) officers in US visit the crime scene with body-worn cameras. This act as a deterrent apart from being a useful tool in collecting evidence,” observed a bench of Justices Adarsh K Goel and Uday U Lalit on Tuesday.

Initiating its exercise with the crime scene photography, the bench pointed out that cameras with

Death investigation at luxury South Beach condo building

Miami Beach police started a death investigation after finding a body in a South Beach apartment Wednesday afternoon.

A 3:15 p.m. call of a dead man in an apartment brought both Miami Beach Fire Rescue and Miami Beach police to 1900 Sunset Harbour Dr., known as Sunset Harbour North. They found what the caller described — a dead white male in the condominium unit.

The Crime Scene Investigation unit and detectives were on the scene soon after and remained there as of 5 p.m.

In April 2016, a bloody stabbing of a Sunset Harbour South resident by his roommate stunned residents and staff in an area where few violent crimes occurred since the South building’s completion in 1998.

Crime scene investigation in a nutshell

WASHINGTON (REUTERS) – This is not the kind of dollhouse you would give to kids, but rather the kind you would give to cops.

These 19 miniature, blood-soaked scenes – meticulously crafted in the 1940s and 50s – are exact depictions of true crimes, still used in police forensic training today.

Their unlikely creator, an heiress to a trucking company named Frances Glessner Lee, who, despite being pushed by her parents toward more so-called feminine pursuits of arts and crafts, had a penchant for solving real-life who-done-its.

Called the Nutshell Studies, they are usually holed up in a Baltimore Medical Examiner’s office but are making a rare public appearance at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC.

Although wealthy, Lee’s focus was often the poor and powerless, those whose cases might be subject to prejudice by police.

Her Nutshell Studies, with their incredible attention to detail, were introduced to the
