Fibers (Forensics 5)

Like hair, fibers are very important in Forensics investigations. One strand of fiber can help us determine who to prosecute and to not. Today in my class, we needed to find the suspect. The teacher gave us the fiber found on the victim, and 5 other fibers to investigate.

Using a laptop, my other classmate group enlarged the image on a screen

After that we used a candle to burn the fiber. We had to find out what would happen to the string. Some fibers smelled extremely horrible when burnt. Unfortunately, I can not put in any videos, but the affects were amazing to watch.
