  1. At the age of 47, Roshan Norouzali was currently serving a life sentence for two crimes committed in 1994. Although he was not a suspect at the time, Norouzali has been charged with the murder of Lawrence Paul Kitakijick in 1992, who was 27 at the time. The police have been able to link the suspect’s DNA to the victim. Also the authorities have been able to link a gun to both the victim and the suspect. In the United States we have a technology called drugfire. According to Laska (1996), “The Drugfire system allows crime scene evidence to be stored and comparisons to be made by examiners in remote locations. Once a weapon is seized from a suspect, Drugfire software can trace it to bullets fired at the crime scene. A mobile criminal is thus no longer anonymous and can be linked to crimes committed throughout the country.” (p. 34) The logic behind the program is that some criminals use the same weapon to commit several crimes throughout the country. Before, it used to be very difficult to link guns to different crime scenes, especially if they were hundreds of miles apart. Now, thanks to drugfire, the cartridge of a fired weapon in a crime scene is stored until a match occurs. Perhaps that was one of the techniques investigators used to solve the London cold case. I believe Roshan Norouzali deserves the death penalty if found guilty for the murder of Lawrence Paul Kitakijick. Jo Sa PSC 201
