Evidence Found: An Approach to Crime Scene Investigation is not another analysis of forensic errors using an "After the Fact" or "Lessons Learned" approach but a "Before the Fact" guide that examines the thought processes that can lead to those mistakes. Plus a few extras tips and tricks from the author's experience of over 25 years. Many high-profile crime scene investigations (and routine ones, for that matter) have suffered errors that have had negative impact on the investigation result and in the courtroom.
This study examines how crime scene analysts, or criminal profilers, tacitly apply a synthesis of Jungian interpretations of active imagination and countertransference. This work clarifies this construct, countertransferential active imagination or imaginal work, through the archetypalist concept of image. For its data, the study presents two distinct bodies of literature. The first is an extensive review of Jungian writings and subsequent archetypalist formulations. The second source of literature is the autobiographical texts by two criminal profilers, John Douglas and Robert Ressler. Jungian Crime Scene Analysis makes use of a range of methodological considerations. Beyond a fundamentally hermeneutic approach, a novel formulation is developed, rhizomic research, which values declaring over answering questions. Utilizing these methodologies, this study presents sexual homicide perpetrators as having disorders of imagination, imagopathy, seen through imaginal deficiencies such as failure of empathy, rigid fantasies, and unresolved projections. This research challenges assumptions that individuation is purely healthful. Individuation powers psychic activity and thus powers the dynamics of sexual homicide. Consciousness, in the transcendent function, transforms individuating images into ethical products.
Steven Cohan's study of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation unpacks the show's focus on forensic technology; its sophisticated visual sty≤ its fascination with subcultures; its relationship with both 'Old' and 'New' Vegas, and the performance of its lead actors, notably William Petersen as Gil Grissom.
Crime Scene Investigation offers an innovative approach to learning about crime scene investigation, taking the reader from the first response on the crime scene to documenting crime scene evidence and preparing evidence for courtroom presentation. It includes topics not normally covered in other texts, such as forensic anthropology and pathology, arson and explosives, and the electronic crime scene. Numerous photographs and illustrations complement text material, and a chapter-by-chapter fictional narrative also provides the reader with a qualitative dimension of the crime scene experience.
