This is a short article on a couple of forensic science issues in the “Making a Murderer” case. This is by no means an exclusive list of the issues, but issues that kind of which are not often addressed – bias in testing and invalidity of a forensic scientific test.
I just signed up for the summer semester, taking “Forensic Analysis of DNA ” and “Applied Statistics for Data Analysis”. These are essentially the two sections of the book I intend to write for completion of my Masters Degree on meeting the challenge of DNA in the courtroom. One: Methodology and Interpretation of DNA Two:
Cold case investigators arrested a Baton Rouge woman Friday in the 2000 stabbing death of her business partner after DNA testing linked her to the killing, police said. That statement sounds pretty certain, especially for 2nd degree murder charge. But I would guess that the DNA link, is just that, a sketchy ‘match’ at best.
