Associates in Forensic Investigations, LLC, is proud to make available the comprehensive "Reviewing and Comprehending Autopsy Reports", by Dean A. Beers, CLI, CCDI.

In order to understand the importance of the autopsy report, and how to interpret it, the reader should understand how all the other factors influence the report and why the reader cannot rely on the autopsy report alone. 'Autopsy' is from the Greek 'autopsia', meaning 'to see with one's own eyes'. This article dissects the autopsy report and supporting death investigation.

This comprehensive peer-reviewed white paper is available for purchase at www.ReviewingAutopsyReports.com.  Complimentary copies and permission to publish for investigative associations are available.  Inquiries can be made to AFI-LLC for consultation, training, and commentary on this and related areas of subject matter expertise.

The Quint-Essential Qualities of a Professional Investigator...
Skills Appropriate for the Assignment
Law firms and medical offices specialize - Professional Investigators also specialize.  Their casework and continuing education should also be in your specialized areas.

Experience and Knowledge
Professional Investigators strive to maintain and further these. All professions have requirements of continuing education.  The CLI program requires extensive compliance with continuing education.

Responsible and Ethical Conduct
Every component of the investigation has evidentiary considerations. Professional Investigators hold themselves to a higher standard and leaves no question as to the admissibility of their evidence.  Information without ethics is not evidence.

Effective Communication
Professional Investigators maintain communication with the attorney, client, witnesses, and other key persons in the investigation.  Moreover, reports are the product of an organized investigation and should reflect the work product you expect.

Keyword - 'Professional'
Honesty, Integrity & Intelligence.  These define Professional Investigators and gives you the confidence that your case is in competent and skilled hands.
