Many might think of dusting for fingerprints, scouring phone records and hunting for physical clues as typical investigative work for police.
During an internship with the Springfield Police Department, Joshua Durham learned that computer forensics is another way to crack a case.
Durham graduated in May from Missouri State University with a double major in computer science and mathematics. He is now pursuing a master of science in natural and applied sciences at the university.
He completed his internship with the police department as an undergraduate. He helped retrieve data from computers in criminal cases.
