Note: At the 2009 IABPA meeting in Portland, OR, USA, the IABPA membership voted to adopt the SWGSTAIN recommended terminology.
- Skeletonized Stains
- [A bloodstain consisting of a darkened peripheral rim where the center of the stain is no longer intact.]*
This pattern was generated by creating a passive drop, waiting to allow some drying, then wiping through the stain.
There are different methods of producing skeletonized stains. A skeletonized stain may also occur when a stain has completely dried and the center of the stain is disturbed by air or an object.
