Herbert MacDonell, crime-scene analyst

MacDonell is a senior crime-scene analyst who interprets blood-stain patterns. Under direct examination, he testified that he examined the blood stains on the socks recovered from Simpson's Rockingham bedroom. He said that there were visible stains on the socks. He also said that he conducted an experiment using similar material and he determined the blood did not drip or splash on the socks, it was transferred either by touching or by a lateral motion (swiping). MacDonell testified that the blood would have dried within five or 10 minutes, implying the blood wouldns coll't have soaked through after the socks were taken off.
MacDonell said he performed an experiment to attempt to determine if the gloves would shrink if exposed to human blood. He concluded: "I could not detect any measurable shrinkage on either glove ... and that's the bottom line. MacDonell was the first of several defense science experts being called to throw scientific weight behind the police frame-up theory and to sketch an alternate scenario for the killings.
