"Sifting the Ashes" Volume 2 # 10

The 16th edition of my monthly newsletter, “Sifting the Ashes,” is now up and available at []. This month includes commentary and links about a new ASTM Standard for Crime Scene Photography, a Law Review article urging judges to apply Daubert in criminal cases in the same way they apply it in criminal cases, and a new code of professional responsibility put forward by the Texas Forensic Science Commission.

This month's case study shows what happens when an investigator who has never investigated the fire in a pool supply store investigates a fire in a pool supply store. He had five reasons for calling fire incendiary. Unfortunately, none of them were valid.

Readers’ comments are welcome, as always.
