Detectives Love Blue Star

Blood Revealing Spray

Maybe a Game-changer for Cold Cases


By: Joseph L. Giacalone

By now you have heard the iconic words from the movie Wall Street, "Blue Horseshoe loves Blue Star Airlines." Now cold case investigators maybe saying the same thing about Blue Star Blood Revealing spray. Blue Star is a new forensic technique that may allow investigators to obtain latent blood samples, days, months or even years later, even if the location has been cleaned or painted. This could truly be the breakthrough that helps solve more cases.

Detectives in Lebanon, Ohio, have used Blue Star in a cold case from 1992. A furniture salesman, Richard Woods, whose body was found a month later inside his parked car, but apparently evidence existed that led detectives to believe that he was not murdered there. Detectives used the Blue Star spray in the now closed furniture store of Woods' rivals. According to Local News 12, detectives did not say specifically what they found, but one was quoted as saying the results were, "pretty astounding." I will assume that "pretty astounding" means that they identified traces of blood in the office.

The product has proven it's merit on a number of cases according to their website. But, the most fascinating part had to do with blood discovered from two Confederate soldiers dating back to the Civil War and the battle of Gettysburg.

Anyone with information on the murder of Richard Woods is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040. All callers' identification will be kept confidential.
