Child Custody Battles Don’t End with the Divorce

A decade ago, when Carlotta left her marriage with Ed, their only child was a toddler. There had been not child custody investigation or battle. Ed was given regular visitation rights in the divorce. Through the years, Ed had moved out of state to live with his parents and contact with the baby was sporadic.

Cell Tower Triangulation Provides Evidence of Innocence

Another interesting case International Investigators recently investigated was centered in a child custody battle. A police officer and his wife in Iowa were divorcing and both wanted custody of their two children.

Our team went to work. First, through cell phone forensics we were able to identify the source of the calls then we requested the records data for those phones from the service providers. At [...]
