Wayne Co. Sheriff's Dept. First In Nation To Solve Case With Forensic Podiatry
Peg Broadcasting News/WKRN Friday February 9, 2018

The Wayne County Sheriff's Department is being hailed as the first in the nation to use forensic podiatry, analyzing how someone walks, to solve a case. Last year, three masked men robbed a liquor store near the Tennessee-Alabama line. They were also wearing gloves so there were no fingerprints and none of the people in the store could identify them. Investigators went over the store's security video from days leading up to the robbery and noticed the way that one customer walked was very similar to that of one of the robbers. Police brought in a foot doctor who specializes in forensic podiatry and the doctor confirmed it. The suspect's gait was a 100 percent walking match to a customer from the day before the robbery. Police contacted the customer who soon confessed and gave up the names of his accomplices. The trio is now behind bars. Authorities in Wayne County, Tennessee are more than a little proud that they beat the FBI in being the first in the U.S. to use gait analysis to solve a case. Law enforcement has used it for years in England.
