Good afternoon. Please state out your name and spell it out for the record. My name is Cameron Paul. P-A-U-L.
What do you do for a living?
I am a crime scene analyst with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Laboratory Service Division, also known as the State Laboratory. Currently, I conduct all ballistics and firearms analysis, in addition to my duties as a chief CSA. What is your relationship with this case?
