Özet

Explosions and molotov bomb throwing actions have prominent economic, psychological and social effects on the collective memory since they inflict nonrecoverable wounds. One of the prominent purposes of the crime scene investigation is to investigate the fingerprints in order to identify the identity of the offender. The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of heat on the quality of fingerprints on the findings obtained in crime scene and to create the standards to use as a routine investigation method in criminal laboratories of the law enforcers. Few studies have been published and little is known about this subject. The paper aims to discuss these issue.
