Impressive forensics

An FBI expert testified today that the hair found in Casey Anthony’s car trunk was from a dead person, not a live person:

Karen Korsberg Lowe told jurors that the 9-inch light brown strand of hair she examined showed post mortem root banding, meaning it came from a deceased body, not a live one.

“It has a darkened band at the root portion of the hair … this is consistent with apparent decomposition,” said Lowe, who has worked at the FBI for 15 years.

I didn’t know they could do that.
