Potential Role of Knee Print in Forensic Identification


Nagy M. B. Al-Fadaly

In this paper, an initial method of collecting knee print and explaining how to prepare it, has been presented. The results of this pilot experiment, which was carried out in order to study the possibility of identifying persons from their knee prints, were also presented. The results showed that by adopting this method, knee print has shown a considerable degree of variability among different individuals. The variability of knee print among different individuals and its potential role in personal identification for forensic field work, particularly, in cases when knee print is involved by some way or another has been discussed. Finally the knee print can probably be considered in the forensic field. Furthermore, more research studies on the knee print should be carried out as it might potentially become a useful forensic identification tool.
