4th Annual Foley Forensic Seminar Speakers
Mitchell Morrissey, The District Attorney of Denver Colorado and a prosecutor appointed by the governor to the JonBene't Ramsey case, one of the most enduring controversial and enigmatic events in criminal justice history. DA Morrissey will present on lessons learned from this infamous crime. He is also a nationally known expert on DNA. Morrissey has agreed to present on a second, separate topic; familial DNA, and then an exciting and inexpensive technology that can identify a criminal who does not have a DNA profile on file with CODIS. Steven Conlon, Deputy Unit Chief of the FBI's storied Behavioral Science Unit and curator of the Bureau's Evil Minds Research Museum at Quantico. Mr. Conlon will be presenting on equivocal death scenes referencing cases from across the country. Terry Thomas, the supervising special agent of the crimes against children unit of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. SA Thomas will present on one of three topics: 1- Child Homicide and Physical Abuse Investigations. 2- Child Sexual Exploitation and Sex Offender Investigations. 3- Child Rape Investigations. Please note your course preference on your registration form in the comment section, so that we may determine what our audience is most interested in. Jan Johnson, former national president and board chairman of the International Association for Identification (IAI) and president of Forensic Pieces. Ms. Johnson will present on Crime Scene Reconstruction and include a component on blood stain pattern analysis. Dr. Philip Levine, a board certified forensic odontologist, will give a short presentation on one of his recent cases. Bite mark evidence analyzed by Dr. Levine and his partner Ken Cohrn resolved conflicting statements and identified the true perpetrator of the crime. A representative of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner's Office will discuss the art and science of what AFMES does to assist America's fallen heroes and their families. It is suggested that attendees take the time to view the 2009 film "Taking Chance" staring Kevin Bacon. It will help them understand the depth of honor, dignity and respect shown by our nation to its fallen warriors.
