“are newborn foot prints as made in the hospital reliable to identify an adult?”
If I remember correctly, the answer hinges on a few factors:
- who well were the prints made e.g. the proper amount of ink as not to drown the baby’s ridges
- the best part for identification in a baby foot would be the ball and obviously this is tricky as the baby’s foot is curled
I’d like to open the discussion here to finger/foot printing experts to voice their opinions so please leave your comments and I will post them a.s.a.p. I’d also like to hear if anyone has experience with successfully identifying an adult from a newborn’s print.
Thanks, VidsEvidence, Identification
