 How Skip Tracing Can Influence Various Cases
As an attorney, locating an individual may make or break your case. Finding a witness that relocated out of state or ran to avoid taking the stand, could potentially acquit your client of charges. Tracking down the parents of a child has the potential to provide that child with valuable medical and family history. Or perhaps your client could get money from clients that have otherwise disappeared. Skip tracing can be used to find anyone.

Skip tracing takes information, diligence, creativity, innovative methods, and the six sense that only our 35 years of experience can offer. It takes getting out in the field and doing old-fashioned legwork to find, follow, and eliminate or verify leads.
Case Study: Arkansas Investigations was recently hired by an out-of-state client to locate a former resident of Texas who had moved to Arkansas and changed her name. After several false leads, resulting in lost man hours and countless miles, we decided to take a different approach. Recognizing that some of the information we were provided was incorrect we reenergized our search, and ultimately located the former wife of a young man who recently passed away. Unbeknownst to her,

 Crime Scene Investigations are Crucial to Casess
Crime scene investigations are critical to the success of a case-but what is it, and why is it necessary? Crime scene investigations are a systemic search of the scene of a crime, to include a specific account of all individuals at the scene, photographs, sketches, the identification, processing, and collection of physical evidence to include but not limited to: fingerprints, clothing, footwear impressions, hair, fibers, biological fluids, and materials for DNA analysis. Most importantly, however, is the careful reasoning to the facts of the scene.

Crime scene investigation is more than just collecting items from a scene. It is a careful and strategic analysis of the facts of a situation. A crime scene investigation can make or break your case, and can prove or disprove that your client was at the scene of a crime. Thoughtful questioning, including, "Who should be at the scene?" needs to be asked and considered. If a senior, non-law enforcement official such as a mayor or prosecutor was on scene, who authorized them to be there? Was it explained?
As an attorney, it's important to ask yourself the following questions:
  • Do I have time to look at every piece of evidence and analyze the facts surrounding the crime scene?
  • Can I dedicate the time to study each crime scene that the case and client deserves?
  • Can I perform the crime scene investigation on my own, and will I be doing my client justice?
  • Do I have time to re-create the crime scene?
If you answered, "No" to any of these questions, it's time to let Arkansas Investigations assist in your case. Arkansas Investigations saves you time and hassle. We spend the time that you cannot afford to spare studying and analyzing every detail of the crime scene. Arkansas Investigations can locate previously undisclosed evidence, find details regarding the opposing party, provide knowledge about properly and improperly handled crime scenes, offer verifiable knowledge of environmental influences to help you determine if evidence was properly protected, and more.
