The Persistence of Body Fluids on Fabrics in Various Water Environment: A Mini Review

Monika Kashyap | Risha Jasmine Nathan [2]

Abstract: The body fluids detected at a crime scene can provide a lot of valuable information regarding the events which may have occurred and the individual(s)involved in the crime that may aid the investigation. Blood and semenare among the most significant body fluids, others include saliva, urine and faeces. The DNA profile obtained from these fluid stains can be extremely useful in the identification of the culprit(s) in cases of death by suicide, homicide, strangulation, kidnapping, drug abuse, harassment, among others. While evidence collection is performed as soon as the crime has occurred and reported, there are instances when there might a time delay between the occurrence and reporting of the crime. In such cases, the stained fabrics may have been submerged in water depending on the type of crime scene. Retrieving valuable information from such evidences can be challenging, In the present review, a detailed examination of the methodologies given in the literature for the analyses of body fluid-stained fabrics has been performed.
