NecroSearch provides assistance to law enforcement agencies in the search for and/or recovery of human remains and evidence.
Assistance: Typical Scenario
Law enforcement investigator contacts NecroSearch via phone, FAX, or mail and gives brief overview of case.
Q & A
The investigator will be provided with a special questionnaire that asks burial-related questions about the case.
The completed questionnaire is reviewed by NecroSearch members to determine the optimum methodology to assist the investigator in locating the clandestine grave.
NecroSearch members confer with the investigator to establish an operational plan. At this stage remote sensing specialists will also review available air photos and satellite images.
If requested, a NecroSearch field team then conducts a site investigation under the direction of the requesting agency. Field investigations typically start with a sequence of non-intrusive methodology such as Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and may progress to actual excavation.
If successful, NecroSearch members provide expert testimony pertaining to the results of the field investigation.
Though we would like to directly help family and friends of those missing, NecroSearch International can only respond when asked to do so by the law enforcement agency in charge of a case, so that we will not compromise evidence.
