Camm Prosecution's Expert Witness Testifies On Blood Spatter

Last updated on Thursday, September 12, 2013

(LEBANON) - As David Camm’s third murder trial continued Wednesday, prosecution blood spatter expert Rod Englert testified as the jury was shown gruesome crime scene photos of the bodies of Kim and Brad Camm lying outside the Bronco where they were found.

WDBR reports, Englert testified that he identified what he believes to be high-velocity impact spatter on the front of David Camm's t-shirt in the hem area.

That kind of spatter is considered blowout from a gunshot wound. Engler said there were drops of blood less than a millimeter in size that he said can only appear on a person who is within three to four feet of a victim as they are being shot.

Englert said there are a handful of blood dots on Camm's shirt that are high-velocity spatter.

The defense team has called Englert's testimony "junk science" and says his demonstrations lack a scientific foundation.

As of late Wednesday morning, the jury had broken for lunch. Afterward, they were to make a bit of a field trip a block-and-a-half from the courthouse. Jurors will be allowed to look at the Bronco where Kim, Brad, and Jill Camm were murdered.
