New Hope resident and independent forensic examiner Dr. John Brick, is the co-author of a new book titled, “Topic Guide to Cold Case Investigations” (aka The Topic Guide), published last month by The Vidocq Society.
The Topic Guide is a unique Socratic approach to murder investigations. It is based on 10 specific topic areas that are key to unraveling cold case murders that are presented to the Vidocq Society. The topics include legal, medical, toxicological, DNA, financial and other areas that link persons of interest to a murder. This publication is designed to assist law enforcement agencies with designated cold case units. As a member of The Vidocq Society, Brick regularly participates in dissecting unsolved cases presented by homicide detectives from agencies across the United States.
