Thistlegorm Forensic's approach includes non-destructive methods and specific scopes of examination, namely questioned fingerprint examination, questioned signature examination, questioned handwriting examination and forensic linguistics, described as follows:
Questioned fingerprint examination involves the forensic analysis and comparison of fingerprint impressions found on a document. The goal is to determine the authenticity and legitimacy of fingerprints present, potentially connecting them to known individuals. This examination assesses ridge patterns, minutiae, and other unique characteristics in the questioned fingerprint to establish whether it matches a known fingerprint.
Questioned signature examination focuses on the verification and analysis of signatures present on a document that are in question. Forensic experts evaluate the signature's features, strokes, flow, and consistency with known signatures to ascertain whether it is genuine or possibly forged.
Questioned handwriting examination involves the scrutiny of handwriting samples on a document that are under dispute. Forensic experts analyze various handwriting characteristics, including letter formations, slant, spacing, and overall style, to determine if the questioned handwriting matches known handwriting samples. This examination aims to identify potential discrepancies or similarities between the questioned handwriting and known handwriting.
Forensic linguistics, also known as “legal linguistics” or “language and the law”, is the application of linguistic knowledge and methods to the forensic context of law, language, crime investigation, trial, and judicial procedure.
