In this episode, we take a deep dive into the forensics, and hear from three professionals who worked on Christian’s case: Michael Knox, who focuses on ballistics and crime scene reconstruction; Ryan Rider, an expert in 3D scanning; and Dr. Jonathan Arden a Forensic Pathologist. These professionals share their scientific findings, which include new revelations refuting the manner and time of death. 

Show Notes

In this episode, we hear from three different experts who offered their opinions on Christian’s case. The first is Knox & Associates, a crime scene reconstruction company out of Jacksonville, FL that offers forensic consulting in ballistics, firearms, and shooting incident reconstruction.

The second expert is Ryan Rider from Triple “R” Investigations in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas, who specializes in the use of a 3D scanner called a FARO machine which he used on Christian’s case to show a replicate of Christian’s apartment and the crime scene in the bathroom. He shares his findings from the scanner and the implications for the case.

The third expert is Dr. Jonathan Arden, a nationally acclaimed forensic pathologist who offered his opinions on the manner of death and more on Christian’s case. Dr. Arden provides some insight into Christian’s time of death that call into question Dylan and Whitley’s accounts of the day Christian died.
