If you are interested in Forensic Science and maybe want to be a CSI one day, you're in the right place - I'm here to help! Here is some information about blood spatter analysis that is used in crime scene investigation, and back at the lab during the analysis. This is just what Dexter did as a career!
The Science Behind Blood Splatters
With the guidance of chemical engineer William Ristenpart, UC Davis forensic science graduate students research bloodstain patterns to precisely determine whether and how a crime may have occurred.
Blood Splatter - Scream: The True Story
Wes Craven's horror film Scream was partly based on the true story of serial killer the Gainesville Ripper. In this case in 1990, forensic detectives used CSI style techniques to determine some gruesome facts from the blood splatter.

Blood Spatter 101
Today, bloodstain pattern analysis is routinely used in murder investigations - analysts draw on chemistry, mathematics and physics to determine the area of origin where an injury occurred.

How do blood splatter patterns help identify what happened at a murder scene?
Forensic Science: blood spatter analysis and crime scene investigation
Forensic Science students take part in a blood spatter practical session, which involves hitting a piece of pork to look at the cast off and blood splatter produced. Students also seen gathering forensic evidence at a mock crime scene investigation.
