WLKY's Jennifer Baileys examines how it's cutting the time it takes to solve violent crimes while training future investigators.

On television, solving crimes is glamourous, easy and always entertaining. But real life forensics is a daunting puzzle, with each piece more complex than the one before. And it's not always about gathering evidence after someone is murdered.

TRISTAN HIEGLER - Herald and News

A Klamath Falls man has been arrested for allegedly choking his fiancée long enough that she lost consciousness.
Thomas Lee Potter, 54, was booked in the Klamath County Jail early Friday on charges of attempted murder, strangulation and fourth-degree assault.
According to Lt. Ryan Brosterhous, Klamath Falls Police Department, units were dispatched to the 100 block of Main Street at 12:19 a.m. The alleged choking occurred in one of the rooms of the River Park Inn.
Brosterhous said alcohol appears to have been involved in the incident. The fact the 45-year-old alleged victim lost consciousness is the key factor that moved what might have been a strangulation charge to attempted murder.

Strangulation Is Most Lethal Form of Domestic Violence
Kathleen McKiernan - The Recorder


In August 1987, Gregory Martino of Greenfield strangled his ex-girlfriend Vivian Morrissey at her Turners Falls home, using a nylon rope.

In September 2010, police were dispatched to Pleasant Street in Athol where Joanne M. Johnson was found dead in her home after her husband, Eric Johnson, strangled her. Johnson later killed himself.

Strangulation is the most lethal form of domestic violence. Unconsciousness can occur within seconds and death within minutes, according to the Training Institute on Strangulation Prevention, a program of the National Family Justice Center Alliance.

Penn Prof and Alums Address Strangulation, Intimate Partner Violence in Research
Jill DiSanto - Penn News


To help policymakers understand the terror and risks experienced by victims of domestic abuse, a University of Pennsylvania professor has analyzed non-fatal strangulation among intimate partners.

In “A Systematic Review of Epidemiology of Nonfatal Strangulation, a Human Rights and Health Concern,” published in the American Journal of Public Health, Susan B. Sorenson and colleagues report that focusing on strangulation may highlight the need for changes to policy, programs and interventions.

The paper was co-authored by Elizabeth Sivitz, an undergraduate student in the School of Arts & Sciences at Penn at the time of publication, and Manisha Joshi, an assistant professor at the School of Social Work at the University of South Florida, who earned her Ph.D. in social welfare at the School of Social Policy & Practice at Penn.
