Homicide Investigations In High Risk Environments.
If you are an attorney and need to find the truth and evidence to help your client or if you are a relative who wish to find the killer of your loved one, ISOG private investigators and private detectives help you investigate the case, find new evidence and identify the real culprits.
Every day people are killed around the world for different reasons. Many homicides are committed by family members but many more people are killed by mafia organizations that fight for control of illicit businesses.
Law enforcement agencies do a hard job in identifying the instigators and the executors, however sometimes, maybe because pressed by the public opinion, they rush the investigations and find the wrong culprit who then spend the rest of his life in prison. These cases are quite common in developed countries as well as in third world ones.
Homicide investigations involve a certain number of different members of the police organization and public attorney office, including prosecutors, forensic experts, homicide investigators, uniformed officers, and medical examiners. During homicide investigations there are many mistakes that these officers may make.
The actions taken by the first officer will affect the success or failure of the investigation. The officers must arrive at the scene, provide medical assistance, apprehend any suspects, secure the scene, identify witnesses, and call for appropriate assistance.
It may happen that these officers do not properly respond to and secure the scene and immediate area. Many times police officers inadvertently contaminate the evidence. Therefore crime scene contamination is a major problem in homicide investigations.
Another mistake investigators may make is not handling suspicious deaths as homicides. All death inquiries should be conducted as homicide investigations until proven differently. If in fact, the death is later attributed to be homicide evidence might have been lost.
Moreover, homicide investigators should not respond to a death investigation with any preconceived notions about the case. We have seen many cases where the prosecutors and the police officers were going down a wrong path
All these mistakes may lead to the arrest and prosecution of the wrong culprit.
