(photo credit: C. Michael Bowers and Raymond Johansen. From Digital Analysis of Bitemark Evidence. c 2004). This is an experimentally produced bitemark on a deceased pig ear. The bitemark was made by Dr. Johansen biting the specimen. Unfortunately, this amount of dental detail is not seen in actual casework which involves human skin.
Would someone please send the following article to the American Board of Forensic Odontology? I think its leadership could use it to save their organization from total forensic disgrace and future public humiliations. The case has nothing to do with bitemark “matching” to a criminal defendant.
