Forensics Analytical Techniques
One of the forensic analytical techniques used in this case were the autopsies performed on some of the children. In Dr. Michael Baden's book, "Confessions of a Medical Examiner,” one of the cases that he profiles is that of Marybeth Tinning. He talks about Jennifer which was the one child everyone said Marybeth did not hurt. She was born with a severe infection and died in the hospital eight days later. Dr. Michael Baden said, "Jennifer looks to be the victim of a coat hanger. Tinning had been trying to hasten her birth and only succeeded in introducing meningitis. The police theorized that she wanted to deliver the baby on Christmas Day, like Jesus. She thought her father, who had died while she was pregnant, would have been pleased." There were many physicians involved in this case. SIDS expert, Dr. Marie Valdez-Dapena, testified that suffocation rather than disease is what killed Tami Lynne.
