Tracking Movements With Isotopes

Remember your Chemistry classes?

Salt Lake County homicide detective Todd Park was in Reno, Nevada, for a conference about serial killers in 2007 when he first heard about what he calls “the isotope stuff.” A colleague at the meeting described the forensic potential of isotope research being done by IsoForensics, a Salt Lake City company, and Park quickly realized that the science might help identify the victim in a homicide case he had worked on seven years earlier.

This project has been ongoing for over 10 years and it required many breaks and gigs and gigs of research. The subject isn't easy but it is important in my view. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to drop me a line. coldercase.com@gmail.com
