hdavis@wdbj7.com For criminal detectives, often
times, finding the body of a missing
murder victim can be like looking for a


needle in a haystack.


A lead takes them to a general
location, but the rest is up to them.


But as News 7's Sinu Abraham
shows us, a new device at Radford
University's Forensic Science Institute
could help investigators search for
victims a little easier.

Mountain View Cemetary has been around
since the 1800's... with over 400
graves. People can easily read the
headstones to find where their loved
one is buried.



But for search and rescue
professionals, finding a murder victim
in a grassy field like this one is like
looking for an unmarked grave.



Using a ground penetrating radar device
can help narrow down their search.




WE CAN SEE UNDER THE GROUND 4, 5, 6
FEET WITH 100 MEGA HURTZ ANTENNA, AND
WE CAN SEE THOSE BURIALS.



The 60-thousand dollar device belongs
to Radford University's Forensic
Science Institute. Archeologists are
teaching local law enforcement how it
to use it.



They say with its help, a body can be
detected in a matter of minutes.


Investigators just have to roll the
device over a surface and look for


peaks on the screeen.



IT SHOWS YOU THINGS THAT ARE
DIFFERENT, AND THEN YOU HAVE TO GO OFF
AND INTERPRET IT FROM THE SOFTWARE TO
SAY OH, THAT'S SHAPED LIKE A BODY."



The gpr has been around for 20 years,
but investigators have only recently
begun to use the equipment at crime
scenes.



Robert Speiden searches for missing
people across the state.


Like most search teams, he relies
mostly on his eyes, searching for clues
on the ground. He says a device like
this would come in handy.



IF SOMEONE BURIES A BODY AND DOESN'T
WANT US TO FIND IT THAT'S CALLED A
CLANDESTINE GRAVE, SO LOOKING AT SITES
WHERE WE KNOW WHERE THE BURIAL IS HELPS
US TO FORM SEARCH IMAGES TO LOOK FOR
BURIED PEOPLE."



ALTHOUGH THE DEVICE WORKS BEST IN
SANDY SOIL CONDITIONS, SCIENTISTS SAY
IT CAN ALSO BE USED TO DETECT HIDDEN


BURIALS IN OUR REGION.



One of the antennas is particularly
helpful in penetrating the clay-like
soil found in Southwest Virginia.



ANYTIME THERE'S A CONTRAST, WHETHER IT
BE A ROCK, A BODY, A BOOT, WHETER ITS A
KNIFE, YOU WILL GET A REFLECTION"




Because of the high cost, local police
departments don't have the device for
their immediate use just yet.



But it's a tool they hope will one day
become a main arm of their
investigative team.
