Interview #21 | Ray Fysh (Former Forensic Scientist)


I welcome forensic scientist Ray Fysh to the show in this interview episode.⁣

 

Ray began working for the Met Police in the 1970s when a forensic investigation was seen as little more than a geeky sideshow, existing only to confirm or eliminate evidence.

 

By the mid-90s, Ray and his team had made huge progress in their field, contributing to the UK becoming a world-leading innovator in forensic techniques. Ray was named Special Adviser (SA) to the Forensic Science Service.

 

As the SA, Ray worked alongside Senior Investigating Officers (SIOs) from day one of a case, directing his team to identify forensic opportunities and harvest case-cracking clues.

 

Ray's first book, 'Shallow Graves: My Life as a Forensic Scientist on Britain's Biggest Cases', was released on September 1, 2022, and is available to purchase here:
