Question:-
Can a type of physical evidence be considered a class characteristic at one
crime scene and an individual characteristic at another? why or why not?
Answers:-
Yes, some types of evidence may be considered a characteristic at one crime
scene and an individual characteristic at another. For example, a shoe print
impression is generally considered a class impression (associated with a certain
group, but not a single source). However, if the impression is distinct enough so
that certain wear marks can be used to link it to one certain source, then this
evidence would be individual.
