Here we go now with footprints “approaching uniqueness.’ The forensic trap of “belief” rather than fact based – empirically proven human ID evidence. This guy just told a bunch of DAs:

“Footprints are not legally unique but they approach uniqueness,”                                            Nirenberg, who operates Friendly Foot Care in Crown Point,” he said.

“Each person’s gait is unique based on their weight, type of shoe, foot                                        or  back problems, height and a myriad other indicators specific to                                            each individual,” he said.

“You put all of these factors together and it creates a foot impression                                          on the ground that is distinctive,” he said. Article

Another stinky body-farm coming your way. This time in Florida. Article
