Crime scene investigator, use of force expert to testify as Day 3 of Tensing retrial begins

CINCINNATI — The retrial of former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing is scheduled to continue Monday with another group of encore appearances.

Cincinnati Police Department crime scene investigator Officer Jimmy Pham, forensic video analyst Grant Fredericks and use of force expert Officer Scott Haug all testified in Tensing’s first trial for the death of Sam DuBose, a black motorist whom Tensing shot during a traffic stop.

Tensing claimed that he was dragged by DuBose, who was attempting to drive away from the encounter, and had fired because he feared for his own life. The prosecution charged him with murder and voluntary manslaughter.

I-Team: Crime scene investigator shows up in middle of night, 36 hours after crime

CLEVELAND– The FOX 8 I TEAM is digging into why a Cleveland crime scene investigator got to a home break-in at 1:30 a.m., 36 hours after a call to police.

It happened this week near W 140th and Lorain.

At midday Wednesday, Michael Jedd found someone had broken into the house he shares with his wife. They called again and again, and a report shows a patrol officer finally took a report the next day.

But, no one came to collect evidence until 36 hours had passed, and it was the middle of the night.

Jedd said, “That’s just ridiculous. I mean, come on. You gotta have better sense than that. Don’t send a fingerprint guy at my house at 1:30 in the morning when I’m asleep, gotta wake up the next day for work.”

A card left by police says someone came by to gather evidence at 1:30 in the morning. No one was

Van Breda: Crime scene investigator to be cross-examined

CAPE TOWN – The crime scene investigator in the Van Breda family murder case is expected to be cross-examined in the Western Cape High Court on Monday.

Warrant Officer Andre Hitchcock told the court last week that police spent about three weeks collecting DNA and blood samples from the scene.

Henri van Breda is accused of killing his parents and older brother while seriously injuring his younger sister two years ago.

Crime scene investigator Andre Hitchcock is expected to be grilled on the witness stand today, following his testimony last week.

Defence advocate Pieter Botha peppered Hitchcock with questions about the types of samples police collected from the crime scene.

The defence had two of its applications dismissed by Judge Siraj Desai last week.

Desai ruled that the initial statement that Henri Van Breda made to police on 27 January 2015 be admissible, despite the defence arguing against this.

The defence also made a request

I Have Never Collected So Many Crime Scene Samples – Van Breda Investigator

An officer, who has collected evidence from thousands of crime scenes in his 24-year career, said he had never collected as many samples at any site as he did at the Van Breda home two years ago.

Crime scene investigator Warrant Officer Andre Hitchcock, testifying in the Western Cape High Court on Thursday, said it had taken police three weeks to collect all the forensic evidence from 12 Goske Street, following the brutal axe attack at the De Zalze home on January 27, 2015.

He recalled that the house had been neat when he arrived, which was out of the ordinary.

“It wasn’t similar to a scene of [any other] house or business robberies,” he said.

In the study, for example, the cupboard doors and drawers stood open, but the contents weren’t scattered around.

He took videos, photos, and a 360-degree recording of the house, before collecting thee swabs.
