“It is impossible for a criminal to act, especially considering the intensity of a crime, without leaving traces of this presence.”
So said pioneering French forensic scientist Dr. Edmond Locard, called the “Sherlock Holmes of France” for his work advancing the solving of crimes.
Students in Christ the King High School’s forensic science class recently participated in what they called a Locard’s Principle Activity. The Locard Principle says that anytime two objects come into contact, there is always a transfer of evidence from one to the other. The CTK students spent a day wearing white T-shirts and then performed forensic tests and analyses to see what they had picked up.
