Old Cases Get Fresh Look with New System – By Kaustuv Basu

Reporter Kaustuv Basu reports that the Gellert murder mystery in Brevard, Florida will be the first “cold case” from the sheriff’s office uploaded to Laserfiche’s online document management system. Thousands of pages of witness interviews, suspect information and notes are being scanned into Laserfiche’s electronic database. Lt. Bruce Barnett, who leads the homicide unit, hopes the ease of looking at the documents electronically might cast some fresh light on the incident, and maybe lead them to the man who walked away from the murder scene on March 20, 1994. Barnett said new technology is the best ally of unsolved cases. Electronically archiving the Gellert documents is another step in that direction, especially because of the volume of paperwork involved. Most murder investigations that Barnett deals with have a box or two of information. The Gellert case has eight. Eventually, the entire sheriff’s office’s 47 unsolved homicides and seven missing persons cases will be accessible online via Laserfiche to homicide agents. The system is a boon when dealing with complicated investigations involving a lot of paperwork, officials say. It was used by detectives in Wichita, Kan., to piece together clues and find the killer in the “BTK (Bind, Torture and Kill)” case, in which 10 people were murdered by the same person between 1974 and 1991, reports show. Law enforcement agencies nationwide use the system to give them easy access to documents, compare notes and witness interviews, and view photographs.

Technology Bites Man – Nancy Mathes, Paper-Lite

Laserfiche reseller Nancy Mathes says that we have all heard that dog is man’s best friend, so it is no surprise that “Dog Goes Bad” will make the newspaper headlines because it is so unexpected. However, when the dust settles, we always find that the dog didn’t “go bad” but rather was “treated badly.” Seldom is a bad dog born; most often, a bad dog is made. So what does this have to do with technology? Mathes says that our world is now built on the solid ground of technology. But if something goes wrong, technology isn’t at fault, but rather it was used incorrectly—or it wasn’t used at all. She said that a digital document management solution with a records management component can play a key part in overall e-discovery planning because it protects and preserve both electronic and physical documents. She emphasized that training for the new puppy can lead to a great long-term relationship. She said that with the proper preparation, you’ll have an e-discovery program that will help you manage all your information, whether it’s paper or electronically stored, in a more compliant manner. But you need to start your records management program today, because if you delay, “Technology Bites Man” might just have your name in the headline.
