Data base analysis for identifying criminal offenses perpetrators – case study

Lecture on a successfully completed criminal investigation and court proceeding conducted after analysing a huge amount of data on the identification marks of the communication devices that were briefly stored in the database of the data provider of the communication service at the location close to the site and just before and after the execution of several criminal offenses. The identification of the subscriber number of a mobile device user appearing in the databases of the communication service provider near the place and at the time of the commission of the criminal offense, enabled monitoring and defining the place of possible commission of a new criminal offense and ultimately the arrest of the perpetrator immediately after the commission of the criminal offense. The presentation and interpretation of the mentioned digital data during the trial was crucial for the pronouncement of the verdict to the defendant.
