The New Forensic Science

Computer reconstruction of bite mark, 2003
Scientists from the Institute of Forensic Medicine collaborated with police in 2003 to solve a triple homicide. Three women were found beaten to death in an apartment outside of Zürich, Switzerland. One victim had a bite mark on her shoulder. After creating dental casts and using 3-D imaging technology to recreate the bite sequence, scientists were able to prove to a jury that the suspect made the mark. He was found guilty.
