Virginia Beach Cops Fake DNA Evidence

Jan 31, 2022

Police in Virginia Beach, Virginia forged Forensic Science Department documents with faked DNA evidence in at least five cases between 2016 and 2020. The cops used the forensics department’s official letterhead and seal but made up the reports and a fictitious worker who “signed” them. An investigation was started last spring when a prosecutor asked the forensics department for a certified copy of a document, which turned out to be forged.

But no worries! The ruling was that cops must promise not to fabricate evidence….

What a crock!
