Celeste Neville, Undergraduate, Assignment 1, September 7 There are six different ways that evidence can be produced.

Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Many times it takes going more in-depth, and looking in the spaces people are unaware of or would tend to overlook.

An imprint is made when an object comes into contact with a hard surface, leaving behind a representation of itself in the form of dust, dirt, blood, or something else of that nature. A prime example of this would be of footprints, that are often found through traces of mud, snow, dirt, blood, etc. An indention occurs through an object being impressed into a soft receiving surface.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
