Devices like mobile phones and computers obtain messages GPS data information together with audio recordings and images that can change the dimension of a case. The information is vital in solving a case that seems to be hard to crack (Frenkel K. 2017). In the case of Dr. Murray Conrad it was evident that the doctor made sudden changes in the medications of the pop icon Michael Jackson leading to his death. However the information from the forensics found on the physician’s iPhone creates evidence of the doctor taking part in the controversial murder of Michael Jackson. During the prosecution of Dr. Murray forensic evidence was vital in on the advancement of technology. According to Garfinkel the federal government should ensure that enough resources are in place to help in the investigation process (Garfunkel S. (2012). Additionally to acquire information from these devices cannot work independently and the use of other software applications is vital despite their complex nature. Thus the digital forensic investigation is essential in collecting evidence for difficult cases like that of the death of the pop star Michael Jackson. References Frenkel K. (2017).
