Summary/Abstract: The crime scene investigation represents the procedural and criminalistic tactical activity whose object is the immediate perception of the place where the crime was committed; searching, discovering, revealing, fixing, picking up and examining traces and other means of evidence; specifying their position and status; determining the path taken by the offender (iter criminis), with the purpose of establishing the nature and the circumstances of the commission of the act, as well as the data necessary to identify the perpetrator. The crime scene investigation is the most important place for the criminal investigation, being, most of the times, the starting point of the forensic investigation. It is the richest in traces or data regarding the fact and its perpetrator, so how the entire investigation, search and collection of the traces or material evidence is carried out, as well as the determination of the results of the investigations, will depend on the discovery of the crime and the identification of the perpetrator.
