Who cares, right? Wrong. It matters because the crime scene investigator is the first line in seeking justice. In most criminal cases, the burden of proof comes down to the evidence—no more, no less. If the CSI does not find the evidence, collect it, and package it properly, then a trial won’t even happen.
