Over the weekend someone sent me this (not nearly comprehensive) list of forensic scandals. It includes a few I hadn’t heard about. Including this one:
In one case, Dr. Campbell claimed to identify to a medical certainty the body of Melody Cutlip; the real Melody Cutlip was later found alive and well in Florida.
Dr. Campbell has also testified beyond the limits of acceptable science in his field, stating in court that bite marks matched to a reasonable degree of medical or dental certainty.
As you might have guessed, Dr. Campbell is a bite mark specialist. In fact, he’s considered one of the country’s best.
