Forensic Accountancy: Crime

Challenge

Defence solicitors instructed us on a murder case where part of the motive was alleged to be financial, through the stealing of monies from the victim prior to the murder.

Results

From detailed analysis of the Defendant’s personal finances over the relevant period we were able to demonstrate that the Defendant’s finances were independent from the victim’s, and that the Defendant’s income was explainable from his own resources. Our evidence was not contested by the Prosecution.
