The photographic documentation of bloodstains may be performed by multiple means, including film and digital 37 Forensic Biology, Second Edition photography, as well as videotaping. Photographs should be taken with an overall view followed by a medium-range and a close-up view of the bloodstain patterns. A scale of measurement must be included in the photograph, which is critical for bloodstain analysis. To avoid any distortion, the photographs should be taken with the camera lens parallel to the target surface where the bloodstains are located.

J Forensic Leg Med, 2012, 19(7): 428–430. 33 2 Crime Scene Bloodstain Pattern Analysis Bloodstain pattern analysis is the application of scientific knowledge to the examination and the interpretation of the morphology, the sequence, and the distribution of bloodstains associated with a crime. These analyses may determine the sequence of events; the approximate blood source locations; the positioning of the victim; and the position, the intensity, and the number of impacts applied to the blood source.

The hypothesis is tested by conducting reconstruction experiments. One example of a reconstruction test is bloodstain pattern reconstruction in violent crimes (Chapter 2). Other examples of reconstruction may include trajectory and shooting, glass fracture, and accident reconstruction. The final step is to analyze experimental data and draw a conclusion. The experimental data are analyzed to see if the hypothesis is true or false. Additionally, the interpretation of physical evidence analysis, witness and confession statements, and investigative information should also be considered.
