Was anyone intrigued enough by the advertisement announcing the South American case ‘The Impossible Murder’ in last month’s issue to try and figure out which of the suspects actually did the murder? Bear in mind that it is a true story, so there are no trick answers – the motive could realistically be surmised.
Dealing with crime has become increasingly more sophisticated this century – and this month we start of series on forensic science, beginning with Bertillonage, Alphone Bertillon virtually invented forensic science – prior to his remarkable and painstaking work, classifying criminals was very much a hit and miss business, with many habitual offenders fooling judges into believing they were first-time offenders and being treated accordingly leniently. Small wonder that his system of bodily measurements became an accepted form of classification throughout Europe and America.
Protection from criminals is also tackled in our ‘Superman Suits’ article. The inventor of the suits has been shot at more times than any other man alive – and it is his unusual hope that he will live to be shot at many more times.
