The FBI’s Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS), which houses known records for approximately 73 million criminal subjects, is used daily by local, state, tribal, and international law enforcement for current cases, but increasingly for help in solving cold cases as well.The crime: In 1978, officers in Omaha, Nebraska responded to a scene and found Carroll Bonnett dead in his home after a brutal assault and stabbing. They found a variety of evidence at the scene, including fingerprints and palm prints. They also found a note that the suspect left that read, “I am leaving this crime with one clue. Find it yourself. Die, pig.” The suspect stole the victim’s car which was later recovered, and prints were also found. Using the information you know, determine whether you could obtain fingerprint from the following items and then identify how you would collect the prints at the scene from the following items of evidence.Since a fingerprint match isn’t enough evidence for an arrest, the detectives looked back over the evidence.Choose 2 pieces of evidence and describe what tests forensic scientists could do to further link the suspect to the crime.Question 2 (20 points) Prints were run but no match was found. In 2008, the Omaha Police Department received an inquiry on the case and a new analysis of the prints was done. The IAFIS returned 3 possible candidates for comparison purposes. Anthony Delgado, currently living in Omaha awaiting trial on a DWI chargeCharles Sand, served time in jail for a drug charge but was now living in OhioJerry Watson, currently serving time in an Illinois prison on burglary chargesThis is the section that triggered the match:Anthony Delgado IAFIS right index finger:Charles Sand IAFIS left middle finger:Jerry Watson, IAFIS left index finger:Whose fingerprint matched the crime scene fingerprint? Explain why the crime scene print matches the person you identified.
