What evidence types will CSIs look for at a crime scene?

Share by emailShare by email

Anything left by an offender at a crime scene is seen as evidence. However, the main types of evidence CSIs tend to find are fingerprints, DNA and footprints. In some scenes it will be obvious to the CSI that there are no footprints or DNA present, so they will focus the scene examination around trying to find fingerprints. In other crime types it may be that only DNA sources or footprints have been left and the CSI will respond accordingly.
