(p.197) 8 Self-Solvers
Investigating Murder

Martin Innes

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the investigative process as it relates to self-solving murders. Self-solvers or self-solving investigations refer to those cases that are solved comparatively easy by the police because there is sufficient evidence at the crime scene for them to identify a likely suspect. An important element of the work that is done in these enquiries relates to the construction of the case in preparation for the prosecution.

Keywords:   self-solving murders, self-solvers, self-solving investigations, evidence, crime scene, suspect, prosecution
