UK: Typical PR ad about a lukewarm improvement in looking at shoeprints

 

Its great to know that university people are looking to improve imaging for impression evidence. This time its shoe prints. Too bad the experimenter thinks that “gait” leads to a “somewhat distinctive” pattern which then begs the question about false positive results or exaggeration. I still remember the shoes OJ owned were “somewhat distinctive.” And “they fit.” (this last is from the FBI expert in 1997).
