Cell phone forensics at International Investigators is more than mobile phone forensic analysis. It can include mobile phone spyware detection or cell phone hack detection and sim card forensics, but it includes many other aspects when it comes to defense in a criminal case. For instance, to provide admissible evidence to support a defendant, we employ a variety of tactics which may include:
- Cell mapping using cell tower location and cell tower triangulation (to finite longitude and latitude locations)
- Cell phone tracking
- Ping expert analysis when evidence includes the pinging of a cell phone and testimony as a ping witness
Even when restricted or blocked calls are uncovered during a mobile phone forensics investigation, we can peel back blocked calls. Of course, to subpoena records for a blocked caller or subpoena records for a restricted caller, there is specific legal wording for cell records required by service carriers. Following the legal process for cell records takes time and, if not completed accurately and properly, can result in delays. Delays mean potentially critical records can be deleted and gone forever. That’s what makes working with experts like International Investigators so important.
When we can track the location of a cell phone we know where the phone has been. We can then use call and Internet use to connect the user to the phone as we deconstruct the web of calls and connections coming in and going out from the phone. Combining cellular phone forensics with forensic cell tower evidence turns the mobile device into a significant cellphone witness.
Cell phones have become tremendously valuable tools to track the movements of individuals. Being able to show exactly where a person was at a specific time on a specific day could be just what is needed at trial – and we’re ready to help gather that evidence with expertise and professionalism.
