A young man robbed a woman in a women's restroom at the Washington National Monument. During the robbery, the woman had a good opportunity to see the young man. The woman immediately reported the robbery and described the young man who robbed her. Three days later, a young man (Crain) was improperly and illegally detained. Photographs were taken of the young man and a photographic display (array) was shown to the woman. She immediately identified Crain as the man who robbed her at gunpoint. In a lineup, the woman again identified Crain as the robber. At Crain's trial for armed robbery, the woman appeared as a witness and identified the defendant as the robber.

Physical evidence is important to establishing that a crime has been committed or can provide a connection between a crime and the victim or between a crime and the offender (Chow, 2001). Unlike circumstantial evidence physical evidence can be manipulated but is a factual object involved in the crime. Physical evidence includes objects such as tire prints, weapons used in the crime, fingerprints, footprints, documents, and fibers as well as many other different objects. In the crime scenario involving the death of Joe after engaging in an altercation was Sam at a bar where Sam pulled a knife and stabbed Joes in the heart which caused him to die. In the scenario involving the homicide victim Joe and the potential physical evidence was left by Michelle and Sam during the crime and after fleeing the crime. Police officers arriving on
