Forensic Video Analysis of Surveillance Video

On short notice, Steven Becker analyzed surveillance video gathered from the site of Missy Bevers’ murder. His goal was to highlight key findings from the footage that may be helpful in identifying the perpetrator. Compelling discoveries from the video include indicators of the height and body type of the assailant, identifying characteristics involving posture and gait, as well as possible identification of the murder weapon. With more time and detailed measurements from the scene of the crime, Mr. Becker is confident that information derived from the video evidence can be helpful toward identifying measurements of the assailant with a high degree of accuracy and certainty. In the video embedded below, you can see a short clip of Mr. Becker explaining to Nancy Grace the type of information that is available and how forensic video analysts approach this work. We have made the original surveillance footage as well as Mr. Becker’s slide presentation available for your review to provide a more comprehensive overview of the video analysis process.
