I understand from your question that you want to know about the latest techniques used in the forensic research or investigations. If I am right, then the latest thing I read in journals was about the brain scanning of the criminals. The studies say that mostly the frontal cortex shows a different pattern than normal subjects.

Hi leelotau,
In the forensic field nothing is bigger than DNA fingerprinting, and by far the most common reagent used (the industry standard) is Applied Biosystems' AmpFlSTR Identifiler PCR amplification kit. With this kit, and a standard capillary electrophoresis instrument, you can link almost any two related DNA samples.
