This week My First Forensic Alphabet looks at the letters I-L.
I is for IDENTIKIT
A witness can describe the person they saw,
Identifying features like their eyes, nose and paw.
J is for JURY
To help give the defendant a trial that is fair,
The verdict’s deliberated by a jury of twelve unbiased bears.
K is for KNIFE-WOUND
There’s a lot to examine in a stab or a slash,
Point of entry and how deep, long, and neat is the gash.
L is for LUMINOL
Iron present in haemoglobin makes any blood trace or mark,
Act as a catalyst so that luminol glows in the dark.
