Forensic Audio: An Introduction

A colleague and former student of mine, Detective Phil Manchester (UK), wrote an excellent article earlier this year titled "An Introduction to Forensic Audio".  It appeared in the British audiophile magazine Sound on Sound.  I highly recommend reading this short overview of audio forensics.

Crime Scene Investigation: Photographic Portfolio
