#AAFS2016 to showcase scientific proofs that bitemark IDs are not reliable

Peter and Mary Bush

This article highlights the research of Mary and Peter Bush at the U of Buffalo which will again be presented at the American Academy of Forensic Sciences annual meeting in Lost Wages, NV.

Peter and a few others (including me) will be presenting this Thursday and Friday in the Odontology and Jurisprudence sections regarding the foundation evidence and empirical research that prompted the Texas Forensic Science Commission to recommend the Texas courts decline its use in criminal trials.

Remember, that the AAFS is a hotbed of bitemark promoters. Members of the news media and criminal justice public interest groups will be watching with fascination as to what they have to say in retaliation and in denial to the results in Texas. What is  interesting is that many of these few believers left are from Texas and surrounding southern states.
