This case involved forensic geology. It is very interesting, but can be hard to follow if you don’t pay attention. The mud that was on Janice Dodson’s clothing did NOT match the mud in her own campsite. It was found in her ex-husband’s campsite, where his rifle had been stolen. Her ex-husband was no where near the site at the time Bruce was murdered. Read the articles. It is interesting.
