What is it and what function did it serve? 2. What relationship does it have to any other items of evidence or to the scene itself? 3. 5 How an item is used in the scene is not always congruent with what the item actually is or how it was originally intended to be used. Just as important, recognizing the nature of the item will assist the investigator later when he or she begins looking at relationships and decides whether the item is foreign to the scene. Knowing this prevents the investigator from wasting investigative effort at some future point.
Each approach described allows investigators to evaluate the evidence and information they find within the scene. By identifying Chisum and Rynearson’s effects, or by pursuing the three questions (what is it, what relationship does it have, and what does it tell us about timing and sequencing), the investigator adds clarity to the overall understanding of what the scene represents. Crime scene technicians cannot simply be garbage collectors. They must know what they are looking for, and they must understand what each piece of the puzzle tells them.
For example, consider the recovery of a piece of glass from a suspect’s clothing. The color and refractive index (the manner in which the glass bends light) can be compared with a sample of known glass from the crime scene. If the forensic scientist discovers that either characteristic does not match, then s/he has effectively established that the two items are not of common origin. On the other hand, if both characteristics match, that does not prove the items are of common origin. In that instance, they simply cannot be excluded as having come from a common origin.
