Fingerprints, what’s possible in facial recognition and much more.
Dr Martin Hall is a biomedical entomologist at the Natural History Museum who assists police forces at the crime scene during an investigation into a suspicious death. In forensic casework, his role is to establish a minimum post-mortem interval from insects found on and around the human remains at the crime scene. This minimum post-mortem interval helps to indicate the specific time when the victim died.
