User: Discuss the definition of forensic science.





Weegy: Forensic science (often shortened to forensics) is the application of a broad spectrum of sciences to answer questions of interest to a legal system. This may be in relation to a crime or a civil action. [ The word forensic comes from the Latin forensis, meaning "of or before the forum." ]

User: What does the principle theory of exchange state? What does this mean for investigators?

Weegy: Locard's Exchange Principle, also known as Locard's theory. "Everywhere you go, you take something with you, and you leave something behind." is the premise behind Locard's theory. [ For investigators, crimes leave fragmentary (or trace) evidence that needs to be collected from the scene and used as clues. Crime reconstruction involves examining the available physical evidence, those materials left at or removed from the scene, victim, or offender, for example hairs, fibers, and soil, as well as fingerprints, footprints, genetic markers (DNA), or handwriting. These forensically established contacts are then considered in light of available and reliable witness, the victim, and a suspect's statements. From this, theories regarding the circumstances of the crime can be generated and falsified by logically applying the information of the established facts of the case. ]
