Who killed Mr. Williamson? Is Mrs. Williamson telling the truth? Or is she lying to save herself? The answer to all of those questions can be determined through the use of blood spatter that was created during the course of events that led to Mr. Williamson’s death. Specially trained analysts, known as blood spatter analysts, use mathematics equations to determine the location of individuals and objects at a crime scene during the time that the violent crime takes place. The equations that blood spatter analysts use in their calculations comes from a division on math known as trigonometry. Investigators then use those calculated locations to determine if their witnesses or suspects are telling the truth through comparison.
