Transfer Occurs when wet bloody surface comes in contact with another surface, leaving a trace or impression of blood A recognizable image may or may not appear
Passive Drops as an action of gravity Can be categorized into drops, clots, pools, drip patterns
Projected Blood spatter can occur on all types of surfaces but may appear slightly different Glass (very smooth) Linoleum (slight texture) Wood/concrete (very textured
