The Process in the Case of
We began looking at the Case of Brock Holmes.
While doing so we were led to the murder of Lynda Tailor, to; Colt Lee White, to; Angela Marie Gilbert, to; Patty Kreiger, to; Keith Anderson.
A researcher was assigned to the Case and Investigation of the missing and subsequent finding of Keith Anderson's remains; as well as, all of the ancillary components of the case.
This is the process we used to perform our investigation of the Case of Keith Anderson:
Our Researcher collected over 1,200 pieces of evidence concerning the case.
The evidence included: police reports, photographs, witness statements, crime scene evidence, public statements, news accounts, social media postings, and television records.
Our Researcher then coorrelated the data into a "Material Report" that was submitted to a Theorist for compiling the objective measures of a criminal case.
Our Theorist completed a forensic case analysis of the evidence available and as a crime investigator, put together and submitted the primary theory of what had transpired in the case and the subsequent conclusions of the weight of evidence.
Out Theorist compiled a "Final Report" of 900 pages that substanciated their cnclusions.
Our Theorist then submitted this Final Report to the Director for evaluation.
Our Director completed a case analysis of the Final Report and wrote a 90 page "Executive Summary" of the Final Report that presents the basis of the facts that make the foundation of the Assumptive Theory.
The Executive Summary
The Executive Summary provides the reader with an overview of the case and the conclusions found in the evidence without providing the evidence in its entirety: That is
- Crime scene photos, full statements of multiple pages when only a section has relevance to the case, personal identifiers of individuals needing continued confidentiality;hold-backs (information not to be released to the public) and the identification of confidential informants; and, information that would be injurious to the survivors of the crime are not made public.
The Executive Summary does provide the process of the investigation and just how the Theorist came to the conclusions that they came to.
The Executive Summary in a redacted form is available on our website
The Executive Summary in its entirety is provided to the involved law enforcement.
The Final Report is provided only to the involved law enforcement.
The Material Report is provided only to the involved law enforcement.
The Related Cases
To show the relationship between the cases of Keith Anderson, Brock Holmes, Patty Kreiger, Lynda Taylor, Angela Gilbert and Colt Lee White, we produced a PDF showing these relationships between the victims, persons of interest, and primary suspects.

Forensic Science Sub-Categories
- Computational forensics concerns the development of algorithms and software to assist forensic examination.
- Criminalistics is the application of various sciences to answer questions relating to examination and comparison of biological evidence, trace evidence, impression evidence (such as fingerprints, footwear impressions, and tire tracks), controlled substances, ballistics, firearm and toolmark examination, and other evidence in criminal investigations. In typical circumstances evidence is processed in a Crime lab.
- Digital forensics is the application of proven scientific methods and techniques in order to recover data from electronic / digital media. Digital Forensic specialists work in the field as well as in the lab.

- Forensic document examination or questioned document examination answers questions about a disputed document using a variety of scientific processes and methods. Many examinations involve a comparison of the questioned document, or components of the document, with a set of known standards. The most common type of examination involves handwriting, whereby the examiner tries to address concerns about potential authorship.
- Forensic DNA analysis takes advantage of the uniqueness of an individual's DNA to answer forensic questions such as paternity/maternity testing and placing a suspect at a crime scene, e.g. in a rape investigation.
- Forensic engineering is the scientific examination and analysis of structures and products relating to their failure or cause of damage.
- Forensic entomology deals with the examination of insects in, on and around human remains to assist in determination of time or location of death. It is also possible to determine if the body was moved after death using entomology.
- Forensic geology deals with trace evidence in the form of soils, minerals and petroleum.
- Forensic geophysics is the application of geophysical techniques such as radar for detecting objects hidden underground or underwater.
- Forensic intelligence process starts with the collection of data and ends with the integration of results within into the analysis of crimes under investigation.
- Forensic Interviews are conducted using the science of professionally using expertise to conduct a variety of investigative interviews with victims, witnesses, suspects or other sources to determine the facts regarding suspicions, allegations or specific incidents in either public or private sector settings.
