During ICAC Traveler operations Allan’s CVSA examinations have also identified suspects as ‘hands on’ offenders and Allan was able to obtain confessions in these cases as well. Allan also is employs the CVSA in Homicide investigations and in one case the results of the CVSA identified a hesitant witness to a murder, who once confronted with the results provided valuable information about the murder.
