Interpretation of Evidence

The gathering of evidence as part of a forensic investigation is often a challenge due to post loss alterations which have occurred before you attend the loss scene.  Such alterations can be due to fire suppression activities, investigation by authorities, or emergency repairs by contractors.   Talking to the persons who have altered the condition or state of evidence in combination with reconstruction of the scene can often correct the alteration of evidence and provide the key to the riddle of what caused the loss.
