Kate Winkler will be at the Hudson Library on March 5th at 7pm. Journalist and documentary film producer Kate Winkler Dawson's latest book, American Sherlock: Murder, Forensics, and the Birth of American CSI examines the life and work of criminologist Edward Oscar Heinrich, known as "America’s Sherlock Holmes." Heinrich pioneered many early forensic techniques that police still use today, including blood spatter analysis, ballistics, lie-detector tests and the use of fingerprints as courtroom evidence. Heinrich’s skills were in high demand and he consulted on many high profile cases including the infamous case of silent film star Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle. Kirkus Reviews calls it "an entertaining, absorbing combination of biography and true crime."
