There are three different types of Reconstruction. The first type is Specific IncidentReconstruction (Traffic Accident, Homicide, Bombing, etc). Specific incident reconstructioninvolves the re-enactment of the entire event, commonly employed during the investigationof a traffic accident or bombings.The second type of Reconstruction is Specific Event Reconstruction (Sequence,Direction, Condition, Relation, and Identity). It focuses specifically on a precise event.Lastly, the third type of Reconstruction is Specific Physical Evidence Reconstruction(Firearms, Blood, and Glass etc.).Specific physical evidence reconstruction relates to the reconstruction of the likes ofblood spatter or firearm use. Crime scene reconstruction is most often discussed primarilyfrom the viewpoint of the type of evidence utilized for the reconstruction, although manycrime scene reconstructions involve a variety of physical evidence and will requireindividuals from several different disciplines to effect the entire reconstruction. In someunusual cases, the reconstruction may utilize graphics illustrators to generate an animated
video re-creation of the events of the crime, in order to illustrate better the scenario to thejudge and/or jury in courtroom proceedings. (Robert R. Ogle, 2011).The Crime Scene Reconstruction process also has three components which aredocumentation, analysis, and synthesis. Here is a chart explaining the different steps in thecomponent process:FIGURE 15-3 Crime Scene Reconstruction Components
The crime scene reconstruction process is illustrated inFigure 15-3, which diagrams theflow of the process and its constituent components. An uncomplicated crime, assault with adeadly weapon, occurring at a single scene is used for illustration purposes. More complexcrimes will have a more complex process, but the framework illustrated inFigure 15-3will
remain essentially the same. The crime scene and its constituents first require properdocumentation, whether there is one crime scene or many. (Robert R. Ogle, 2011).The documentation component discusses how a crime can be committed with the elementof blood spatter. It could be as simple as a blow to the head on a victim. Certain documentationand including notes, photographs, and sketches must me collected and evaluated in the crimescene reconstruction investigation. It is important to reconstruct a crime scene because if one hasno knowledge as to what took place and how it took place, they lack the ability to figure outwhom and why.The second component is the Analysis component. The analysis component is the data orinformation obtained from the crime scene documentation that was collected previously. Itdetermines the size and shape of blood stains in a crime scene. Also it produces the type ofweapon that was used to generate the blood stains at the scene.
