Evidence Examination / Results

Sam Smith confirmed the wallet and mobile phone in Steve Jones 5 Skid Row Circle, Unit 2 residence. The victim’s documents, such as thus credit cards and work identification cards found inside. However, there was no money inside the wallet. Sam Smith reveals that he has six hundred and fifty dollars in his wallet by the time of the attack. Additionally, the button found on the crime scene matched a tire on the victim’s jacket. Even though Steve Jones was not in the house by the time the police raided his home, his fingerprints were found on the mobile phone and wallet, confirming the evidence was not planted in his absence (Houck & Siegel, 2009).

Additional Reports

Additional reports in this investigation include fingerprint reports found on the knife. The investigators also took photographs of the crime scene and the alleged perpetrator’s residence at 5 Skid Row Circle, Unit 2.

Further Investigation

There is a need for further forensic testing with DNA testing on the blood found on the knife. The confirmation of blood on the knife being of the victim and the fingerprints belonging to the client would confirm Sam Smith’s claim. This would support the offense being an armed robbery (Cavanaugh & Bathrick, 2018). The investigators can also interrogate Steve Jones in an attempt to obtain a confession for the alleged crimes.
