How Private Investigators Solve Cases
Crime scenes are the most challenging things to investigate. The job of a private investigator seems to be a very hard and stressful job because of the pressure one is subjected to especially when doing a heinous crime scene. These professionals are responsible of making sure that all information and evidence are collected from the crime scene that would serve as the answer as to who did the crime.
Typically, private investigators collect material evidences in the crime scene. It is important they do not leave the crime scene without getting enough evidence that would lead to conviction. Because of this, much pressure is on the investigator because there is a need to collect only the important information and not the useless ones. To solve the case, some private investigators come up with unusual ways to find evidences. They have to have, not only intelligence, but also presence of mind and creativity to be able to be instrumental in the solving of the crime.
One of the most unusual would be reconstructing the crime scene and basing the solving of the case on the reconstruction process. This is done by returning to the scene for days or even weeks and tries to reconstruct or live out what complex events lead to the crime. Most of the time, a zero-point is made the point of reference. In murders, it is the murdered body that is used as the zero point.
To be able to be a good private investigator, it is important to have a good eye for detail. What others might think to be ordinary might be something important for the crime to be solved. One unexpected and new way that is used by investigators is brain fingerprinting which has been found to be very accurate. Since DNA and fingerprints are not always found in crime scenes, brain fingerprinting seems to be the answer.
Brain fingerprinting is usually tested on suspects and even on witnesses to know the truth. This is finding out how much one knows about the crime. If a possible witness goes through the test, the choice is narrowed down by either turning the witness into a suspect or confirming that he really is a witness and not the crime perpetrator.
To put it more clearly, brain fingerprinting is a Threat Recognition Test that determines if the subjects recognizes pictures or items that have been found in the crime scene. It is like finding out if that person was present at the crime scene and see how much he knows about the crime.
It is a very difficult profession yet it is full of excitement. Any investigator, whose crime is solved because of his expertise in the way the evidences were found in account of the crime, would feel much fulfillment as he would have helped other people in making their lives less miserable because of the solving of the crime.
