This exclusive reportage was made thanks the assignment of the french magazine PHOSPHORE. During two days, we met the staff who worked on the attacks of Bataclan in 2015 and who work also on any kind of criminal case which implies murders, suicides or any other kind of death suspected to be not natural. We learn either about the quantity of informations a bullet can let after being shot or how experts can find any clue by using DNA investigation.
