Are you getting the complete forensic picture?
A defendant was arrested by Police. During the enquires officers seized the defendant's mobile phone. The outcome of
‘in-house’ examinations revealed there were two media files deleted that could not be recovered using their forensic tools.
The timeframe associated to the creation of these files was identified as significant to the investigation. The force decided to
outsource a further examination to a private digital forensic company who were also unable to recover the files or the exact date and time they were created.
The prosecution evidence
The files were identified as one video and one picture file, however, it was claimed by the prosecution that the files were
overwritten and not recoverable.
The defence case
The solicitors representing the defendant instructed Fusion to confirm the prosecution's findings. The defendant was adamant that the files would assist his defence case.
Using sophisticated advanced data recovery tools and their experience Fusion were able to recover the exact date and time each of the deleted files were originally created. Fusion also successfully recovered the picture file that had been declared as overwritten. Although the video file was not recoverable an image (frame) from the video was able to be extracted. This picture file held crucial information such as the time of day and location.
Fusion provided an evidential report and following a trial the defendant was found not guilty.
