EXAMPLES OF CASES WHERE HANDWRITING EVIDENCE IS ENCOUNTERED
As no two persons write alike, handwriting evidence is useful in various types of cases involving anonymous letters, and disputed “IOU” loan agreements, security documents, official documents, wills, deeds, suicide notes and cheques.
For example, the handwriting on “poison pen letters” can be examined to determine if these handwritten letters could have originated from the same source. The handwriting specimens of suspects can be submitted for comparison with those on the letters to determine if they could be traced to a particular person.
Handwriting examination is also widely used in cases where authorship of a document is denied or disputed. The handwriting can be compared with known specimens from the said person to identify or eliminate him/her as the writer.
