Forensic evidence can be key in a murder trial. So how do forensic experts work with law enforcement, from crime scene to courtroom? In connection to the finding of Gary Westerman’s body in the latest episode of Up Against the Mob, Elie Honig spoke with Lisa Dadio, a retired police lieutenant in Connecticut and current assistant dean at the University of New Haven about the art and science of forensics and its role in prosecutions.
