Stab Wounds: Existing research and literature

After Jeff was convicted, the Jeff NEEDS Justice team reviewed over 70 research studies regarding stab wounds.  From the published research we discovered that the opinions given by “experts” at trial were not supported by the published research.

The research cited on our webpage and referenced below is only a small sample of the larger body of research:
