Blood evidence detection

YOKNAPATAWPHA COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT

Investigating Officer(s): Det. T. Armstrong, Det. S. Murphy
Incident No.: 000177-10A-2021
Case Description: Katie Masters death investigation

Crime scene technicians at the Katie Masters murder scene theorized that blood evidence might be present on some of the nonporous surfaces in the room.

To ensure they could reveal and record that evidence, they used Bluestar Forensic Magnum luminol, which is more powerful than standard luminol, in conjunction with an Ecospray micro-sprayer, which distributes the luminol solution in a fine mist to avoid drips that can distort the bloodstain pattern.

The combination of the two enables CSU to see intricate detail in the bloodstains that would not otherwise be visible.
