Infanticide Forensic Investigations.

18027. Infanticide Forensic Investigations.

This term paper focuses on five perspectives (as found in five different sources) relating to infant killing and forensic investigations. The perspectives are: (1) educational campaigns have reduced the number of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) cases, thereby helping to reveal bona fide cases of infanticide, (2) there is a need to balance thoroughness with sensitivity in investigations, (3) genetic evidence is becoming increasingly important, (4) procedural rules tend to take precedence over physical evidence in trials, and (5) society is ultimately to blame when mothers commit acts of infanticide. The relative strengths and weaknesses of the claims and arguments in the five chosen sources are discussed. KEYWORDS: forensics infanticide criminal investigation infant deaths killings. APA Style. 15 pages, 14 footnotes, 10 bibliographic sources. 3,521 words.
