WHAT NOT TO DO AT CRIME SCENES
This link leads to a nice article on what police officers should not do at crime scenes. Writers should also follow these guidelines in their crime stories. Just last week, I was reading a Christian suspense novel by one of my favorite authors and came across an account of a murder scene. The police had outlined the location of the body in chalk. That's a big no-no. We do not alter the crime scene. We use photographs and measurements to document the location of the body and items of evidence.
