The Dubai Police have linked some buried weapons discovered in a remote area to a homicide case by analysing tool marks examined in the victim's bones and cartilage.

Major General Dr Ahmad Eid Al Mansouri, Director of the General Department of Forensics and Criminology at Dubai Police, said they were able to provide reliable evidence for the Dubai Public Prosecution to proceed with the adjudication.

“The successful application of micro-CT tool mark analysis reflects, once again, Dubai Police’s keenness on keeping pace with the latest scientific advances across all fields and utilising available technologies in the policing work,” Al Mansouri said.

Commenting on the murder case, Lieutenant Eng. Mohammad Al Shamsi, Head of Firearms and Tool Marks Section at Dubai Police, said that the Command and Control Room at Dubai Police had received a report on a corpse found in a remote desert area in Dubai. “A specialised team was immediately dispatched to the crime scene, but they were unable to find the murder weapon anywhere near the scene,” he added.

Al Shamsi explained that painstakingly investigation led to six suspects who had attacked the victim with white weapons (knives) over a dispute. “The suspects had intentionally buried crime tools in a different remote area to mislead detectives and divert investigation,” he said.

Al Shamsi further noted that it was impossible to left fingerprints on the discovered knives due to natural erosion and humidity. “At first, it was impossible to link crime tools neither to the suspects nor the case. Therefore, the evidence was handed over to Dubai Police’s forensic analysts who are specialised in tool marks in human bones and cartilage,” he said.

“After collecting tool mark prints from the victim's wounds and bones and comparing them to the weapons, Dubai specialists were able to link them to the murder case and provide convicting evidence that could stand in court and serve justice" Al Shamsi concluded.
