Actually there are serious flaws with most forensic techniques. The short list of questionable techniques includes hair analysis, shoe and tire patterns, blood splatters, bite mark analysis, bullet lead analysis, general handling and processing of forensic evidence, and even fingerprint matching. Add to that new technologies such as linguistic analysis, computer forensics, facial reconstruction, DNA evidence, and basic profiling techniques and the room for error begins to seem like a bottomless pit of uncertainty. Basically any type of forensic evidence should be regarded as inconclusive and circumstantial.
