Pressestimmen"Dr. Cyril Wecht has brilliantly fused his skills as a forensic pathologist, attorney and author to show how the world of forensic science is used and misused by prosecutors, defense attorneys, police and expert witnesses. Mortal Evidence is a primer on how the criminal justice system really works."
-Dr. Michael M. Baden, Forensic Pathologist and
former Chief Medical Examiner, New York City
"Wecht is a master. Whether you agree or disagree with his conclusions - regarding Jon Benet Ramsey, Ted Binion, Sam Sheppard or OJ Simpson - you ignore his findings at great peril. In Mortal Evidence, Wecht brings back the dead and has them testify from the grave."
-Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law School
"Each case leaves a chilling feeling as Dr. Wecht examines the footsteps of what each killer or killers may have done in some of America's most notorious crimes ... As always, Dr. Wecht finds the clues that others overlook."
-Greta Van Susteren, Host of Fox News Channel's "On the Record"
