ABSTRACT
This case study describes the enhancement and examination of a skin texture mark on one of a pair of gloves processed with vacuum metal deposition with the objective of determining who made the skin texture mark found on a glove left behind at a murder scene. The use of aluminum powder and a black gel lifter was tested and found to give the best reference prints. This case continues to support the sparse empirical evidence to support the use of skin textures as a means to associate a particular individual as having been in physical contact with a particular object or surface.
