Blood Secrets

New or Used: 2 copies from $23.95
Blood Secrets, by blood-spatter expert Rod Englert, is a fascinating inside look at what really happens during the reconstruction of a crime scene. Many of the most spine-tingling case studies are of lesser-known murderers, but Englert also reveals never-before-told details from his work on well-known cases involving O.J. Simpson, Robert Blake, Bob Crane and others. How can the police tell what type of murder weapon was used when the body is missing, and all that's left is a trace of gore? How can they tell if a victim was moved, or which person in a room fired the fatal shot? When Rod Englert began his career in law enforcement, virtually no police force in the world knew how to correctly examine blood spatter. Englert spent years studying and testing how blood behaves, pioneering a vital new tool that is now a part of any criminal investigation. Blood Secrets reveals how blood spatter analysis is used in real cases.
Product Details


Proving that one person's bloody mess is another's treasure trove of clues, blood spatter analyst Englert takes readers on a fascinating journey into the study of crimson drops. Englert's first encounter with blood-and the stories it can tell-came when, as a young cop, he mistakenly assumed a bloody corpse had been the victim of an ax attack; in reality the victim had succumbed to a particularly nasty case of bleeding ulcers. He educated himself about the behavior of blood by recreating crime scenes in his Oregon barn using cow's blood and attending every available seminar on the subject. Englert presents case studies for each principle he discusses, from the varying velocities of blood spatter to the trajectory of a killer's bullet. It's easy to see why he's a favorite expert witness of prosecutors around the country, even in celebrity cases like O.J. Simpson's and Robert Blake's. With the help of reporter Passero, Englert deftly balances real-life examples and detailed scientific analysis, giving readers a richer understanding of this developing avenue of forensic science. 11 b&w photos.
