Don’t ever think that police don’t exert terrific influence over supposed “independent” offices run by forensic pathologists and forensic scientists. This story started in 2016 when a NYC senior ME kicked back on an in-house DNA “experiment” that went into use and quickly came under adverse scrutiny by the Innocence Project’s Barry Scheck.
Here is one NY politician (aka: OCME counsel: i.e. lawyer) talking about the ME, Marina Stajic.
“She sucks,” seethed Mimi Mairs, then OCME special counsel, in an email sent hours after Stajic took her stance as a member of the state Forensic Science Commission.
Nothing better than hearing a lawyer talking about science, no?
Stajic’s boss, Sandra Brown wasn’t much better. Here is her glory page.
