- New Witness
The people call Charles S DeFrance, FBI special agent
Special Agent DeFrance: Became FBI employee in 1986. Currently works in criminal intelligence and evidence response team.
Special Agent DeFrance: "When i arrived i evaluated it. it definitely had a lot of potential for a shooting reconstruction."
1st stage of Special Agent DeFrance's work involved locating projectile impacts.
Special Agent DeFrance: Saw impacts in theater 9 and 8.
Special Agent DeFrance: "It was pretty apparent to me that the scope of the scene was pretty large from the standpoint of number of shots fired and just the complexity of the scene itself." As a result, requested additional resources from the FBI Lab in Quantico
