Leaving Without a Trace? How Your Skin Can Tell on You

When it comes to crime scenes, what is the first one that comes to mind?

Is it a famous crime that deals with a football player and his ex-wife and her lover?

Chances are it is, but instead of thinking about the final judgment of not guilty, think about all the evidence that was found.

DNA Match

The O.J Simpson trial was one of the most covered cases in America. Simpson was charged with murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman.

The trial consisted of 108 exhibits of DNA evidence, including 61 drops of blood, that were found at both the crime scene and his own home. Each DNA evidence was presented at trial, some of which were fingerprints, and possible finger skin flakes.

During his trial, the prosecution argued that Simpson’s finger was cut during the alleged altercation and he bled throughout the scene. His DNA was a match and was found on a fingerprint near one of the bodies.

Regardless of his DNA being found at the scene because of the cut on his finger, Simpson was found not guilty and each strain of evidence was thrown out.
