DETROIT — It’s hard to think of a better place to get the forensic examination you need to solve a homicide than Bellefontain, Wisconsin.
With a population of about 40,000, Bellefontains crime scene is the size of five major cities, including Detroit and Cleveland, and it’s the largest city in Wisconsin, according to the FBI.
The county has been the site of more than 300 homicides in the last 25 years, according the U.S. Justice Department.
And because of Bellefontines crime problem, a new study released Tuesday by the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine found that the number of forensic pathology examiners in the county is more than double the national average.
“I have had more than a hundred different people come to me in the past week,” said forensic nurse specialist David C. Sargent.
When Sargenter was working in Bellefontane, he often went to the crime scene with a team of four forensic examiners, one of whom was assigned to the scene of the crime.
Sargent said that in some instances, the forensic examiner did not take the time to understand the crime or the evidence.
He said that he often did not even understand how he would be able to tell if a crime had occurred, so that a suspect could be identified.
Sargenter said that the lack of understanding of the evidence is not uncommon among forensic examines.
“You’re in the crime lab and there’s no one watching you, and you’re the one doing your work,” Sargant said.
“When you’re there, it’s just like the first time you go out on a limb, but it’s not like that when you’re out there in a field, it doesn’t happen.”
The new study, “Exploring Forensic Medicine’s Impact on the Crime Scene: A Quantitative Analysis of Bellefield County,” was conducted by UW-Madison researchers using data from the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
The report found that while Bellefontanes crime scene has a history of violent crime, the study found that most of the crimes were not related to the crimes that were committed in the community.
The study also found that Bellefontine had the lowest rate of forensic examining in the country.
The findings are the first of their kind to track the impact of the lack and severity of crime in a community.
They found that crime rates in Bellefield declined by 0.1% in the decade from 2009 to 2014, while the county crime rate increased by 3.5% over that same time frame.
The number of criminal investigations dropped by 2.5%, the report found, but the rate of prosecutions dropped by 4.3%.
The report also found there were more cases of “inconsistency” between forensic examinees.
It found that in cases in which forensic examinants performed the same examination, the examiners tended to have the same answers, which could lead to the false conclusion that an investigation had taken place.
In one case, the report noted, forensic examined a man who was arrested for possession of cocaine, but did not provide the drugs in question.
The county’s chief forensic examiner, Jennifer J. Williams, told ABC News she found the findings concerning.
Williams said that while it is not unusual for her to see some inconsistency between forensic examiner and crime scene examiner, she was concerned about what could happen when the same forensic examiner is assigned to a crime scene and the same crime is committed.
She said that a more thorough investigation could be conducted to determine if a mistake was made.
“We need to get more data on what’s happening in these types of cases,” Williams said.
The crime lab has also been criticized for the lack on its part of data collection on its work.
Williams said the crime laboratory’s website does not include the countywide statistics on crime rates.
According to the report, there are about 300 forensic pathology technicians in the area, and about 60 of them are certified by the National Association of Forensic Pathologists.
But, according a report in the Journal of Forensic Sciences, only about half of these technicians have undergone a one-on-one assessment by a forensic pathologist.
In an interview with ABC News, Williams said that because of the limited scope of the study, the state of Wisconsin had to make the necessary changes.
The law states that forensic examineries must collect crime statistics, but only after two years.
According the study released in the journal, the problem with collecting crime statistics is that the only way to do that is to obtain crime statistics.
In other words, the statistics only show crime rates that have been reported.
According Williams, if we had collected the crime statistics for the whole county, we would have found that we are much more effective at solving crimes, and that’s a better way to collect crime data.
