Forensic Commission making suggestions about how and why bitemarks fall short of science

Today (Friday) the Texas Forensic Sci Panel will bring out their final position on bitemarks in the state. Here are some of their reasons why it will not be positive for the bitemarkers.  The article misleads the scope of the Commission as “banning,” when it is really merely recommending.

Not surprisingly, the American Academy of Forensic Sciences accreditation board (FSAB) will soon be taking on a review of the “approved” status of the bitemarker’s recalcitrant non-science group the ABFO.
