"Blood spatter is used to pinpoint the location and direction of impact as well as to sometimes determine the weapon used for a crime. Can the path of these blood spatters be determined using physics and geometry? The investigator believes that the trajectory and point of origin of blood spatter can be found using geometry and physics because trajectories will always follow a natural pattern. "
