Just about every criminal case involves physical evidence, and that physical evidence is often processed by a crime lab.
There are more than 400 crime labs across the United States for researching crimes against people and property.

That is the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's Forensics Lab in Ashland.
Poaching and endangered species kills are major components of the lab's work. Director Ken Goddard joins us.
