The evidence available in a hotel or resort case, number one, is video. Many hotels, many resorts, as a matter of fact most of them these days, have video. It’s important, though, to know that if there is video, you need to get it within a very short timeframe, because they record over their video or they re-use tapes and thereby destroying critical, critical evidence in the case. Other evidence in the case might be photographs taken by the police, homicide investigator, taken by other guests, taken by management, taken by the hotel or resort’s insurance company, things of that nature. There might be things left on the scene that, of course, we want to document with photographs.
