Abstract

An adhesive tape lint removal roller was used to isolate fibers from a homicide victim's clothing that had been exposed to the elements for twenty-nine days. Comparison microscopy, microspectrophotometry, and infrared analysis were used to compare recovered fibers to known fibers obtained from the suspect's shirt and the car in which it was believed the homicide occurred. Fibers recovered from the victim's clothing included specimens that were indistinguishable from fibers constituting the suspect's shirt, and others that were indistinguishable from the three distinct types of fibers comprising the upholstery, carpeting, and trunk liner of the car. The distribution of fibers on the various garments helped corroborate the crime scenario.
