  • INDIANA PODIATRIST'S FORENSIC GAIT ANALYSIS LEADS TO ARREST IN ROBBERY CASE

 

 

 

 

A small, rural sheriff's department in Tennessee made an arrest in a robbery case with forensic podiatry, analyzing how a person walks, for the first time in the U.S. It all started more than a year ago when three masked men walked into Barry’s One Stop Package Store near the Tennessee-Alabama line in Wayne County, TN. “They had masks, gloves,” said Wayne County Sheriff Ric Wilson. "There were no fingerprints, no witnesses. They were in and out in one minute and 38 seconds." All the department could do was go back to the surveillance tape from the days prior to the robbery and try to see if anyone was casing the place.

Wayne County sent the robbery video and the video of the men lingering at the cooler to forensic podiatrist Dr. Mike Nirenberg in Indiana. He did a detailed analysis and identified the robber as a 100 percent walking match to the man lingering at the cooler, days earlier. The sheriff brought the evidence to District Attorney Brent Cooper. “The doctor does a great job how he studies gait," Cooper said. "It was a great report. It is really compelling proof."
