Brain Fingerprinting
Background Information for Falsely Convicted Individuals

The following information will be useful in determining whether Brain Fingerprinting (and other forensic investigative technologies) can be applied in the case, and how this new technology may help in the case.  Please provide any information you have regarding the subjects listed below.  If you do not know some of the information, please indicate who would know the information (e.g., attorney, friend, relative, advocate, etc.) and provide their name(s), phone number(s), postal address(es), and email address(es).

23. Brain Fingerprinting detects information stored in the brain. It does not directly detect guilt, innocence, lying, or truth telling.  To exonerate an innocent defendant, we need details about the crime that the perpetrator would know, but the innocent defendant does not know.   Brain Fingerprinting can show scientifically that he does not have these details stored in his brain.  What is needed is information that the perpetrator would have encountered in committing the crime, but the innocent defendant has never been told in the course of the investigation and trial -- so a real perpetrator would know the information, but the innocent defendant does not.   Do you know of any details in any way related to the crime, the crime scene, or the events surrounding the crime that the innocent defendant does not or may not know?  If so, please describe in detail.

24. What would be the best source(s) that you know of to obtain details about the crime that the defendant may not know?

25.  What funds are available to pay for Brain Fingerprinting if it is determined that Brain Fingerprinting can be used to test the defendant? What is the source of funds?

26.  Any other comments regarding the case
