We’re just full of lessons today. This one comes courtesy of Ismael Ortiz. wearing gloves will help to conceal fingerprints only if you leave the scene with all your fingers. Ortiz was hired to burn down a guy’s house so he could collect on insurance. But in his haste to get the hell out, he slammed his finger in the door, cutting off his fingertip. Fire officials found the amputated tip, and police found Ortiz at the hospital. Like the story of Cinderella and the glass slipper, they matched tip to finger, and voila, they had their man. That was easy.
