GPS data extraction changes focus of murder investigation

A cardiologist from Recife, Brazil was murdered. By retrieving GPS data from devices belonging to the potential suspects, including his wife, eldest son and gardener, and the victim, the Pernambuco Civil Police Force obtained critical evidence.

2 main challenges:

  • Access data from a smartphone belonging to a suspect, and cloud data via the victim’s laptop.
  • Identify the true perpetrator(s) of the crime.
