DFIRL Episode 08: The Case of Baby Eloise
In this episode of Digital Forensics in Real Life podcast, we will be talking about the case of baby Eloise, a story about a man found guilty of murder after violently abusing his girlfriend’s 17-month old girl. Please be advised that there are horrific details provided about this case and listener discretion is advised.
This case shows the importance of interplay between digital gathering and old-school detective work. The lead detective establishes a timeline using classic interview techniques and the examiner finds digital evidence along with medical evidence that proves the suspect is lying. Some of our other cases involves more smoking gun digital evidence but this one is illustrating the increasing need for digital evidence to work along side other case details. This episode was recorded live at Magnet User Summit in Nashville Tennessee in April 2022.
In this case we get a different perspective as the prosecutor is joining us, Assistant District Attorney from Nashville Davidson County Jan Norman, alongside Chad Gish detective and forensic examiner from Nashville police Department.
