Geoforensics is a method that the police and forensic scientists use to help solve murder-related crimes. Here we uncover cases where the innovative approach of analysing soil evidence proved successful. Soil samples, from footwear or vehicle footwells, can demonstrate a clear timeline of the movements of suspects and their vehicles, making a lie of their stated alibi locations and tying them into a crime scene. Mud recovered from a killer's vehicle can direct a search for a missing body and help to secure a murder conviction, and geophysical techniques, commonly used in archaeology, can be deployed to reveal clandestine burials.
