Forensic scandal of bitemark believers widens from horrible to worse. If that’s even possible.

The status of the American  Board of Forensic Odontology sinks further into the swamp of discredit as the number of wrongful bite aided mis identifications in criminal cases increases to 26 in the United States.

Plus the State of Texas may soon take a look at a case rife with false bitemark testimony which led to an execution.

Just added are more denials of methodology failures by its president Dr. Gary Berman, and obvious malfeasance by its Executive Committee ignoring its own Policies and Procedures. They regularly block its general membership from participating in reorganizing the obvious faults and public  misrepresentations  made by a handful of its “officers.”
