Crime Scene Reconstruction

Forensic crime scene reconstruction is the process of determining the sequence of events about what occurred during and after a crime.  Crime scenes may be reconstructed through the study and interpretation of scene patterns and the examination of physical evidence.  The Connecticut Forensic Science Laboratory can assist in a local, state or federal law enforcement agencies request for crime scene reconstruction assistance.   Some examples of the different types of reconstructions may include blood spatter interpretation, trajectory and shooting reconstruction, accident reconstruction and sexual assault reconstruction.

The requirements for a thorough reconstruction will include all photographs from scene, autopsy and physical evidence.  Notes, measurements, sketches should also be obtained.  Any reconstruction can only be as good as the information provided.  Reconstructing certain facts or aspects of the events without being able to reconstruct them all (due to various reasons) can provide valuable information to the investigation and future prosecution of a case.   Thus, the Connecticut Forensic Science Laboratory offers numerous laboratory experts and consultants in order to assist in conducting a crime scene reconstruction.
