Storyboard Text

  • Since the beginning of the 20th century, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, had been essentialto solving many difficult cases.
  • However, their resources were limited as far as forensic science went, even though fingerprintingand DNA testing existed.
  • In 1904, president Franklin Delano Roosevelt created a division of theFBI to run a forensics lab in the Pentagon to help run tests.
  • The location, however, was the Pentagon's attic. As frustrating asit may have been, the agents assigned there still did as good of work as any.
  • The FBI Crime Lab operated out of the attic until 1924, when their own building opened at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Quantico, Virginia.
  • Since then, the FBI Crime lab has been the most requested forensics lab to date, having helped solve countless investigations across the country.
