"Dan was a free thinker and born rebel. Dan was thinking 'outside of the box' long before there was a box and it became fashionable to do so. Dan was not adverse to having a contrary opinion. He was always a man ahead of his time."
As a memorial to Dan, the IABPA has established a
research grant intended to advance the science of bloodstain pattern
