Georgia “Ace” Pasqualone, my forensic investigator and medical expert for 20 years, was an internationally recognized lecturer, writer, and forensic expert. She possessed a keen analytical mind, unbreakable resolve, and an indefatigable dedication to finding the truth. Georgia was more than a gifted professional. She was a comrade in arms. Indeed, she is irreplaceable.
Studying under legendary crime scene reconstructionist Dr. Henry Lee, Georgia earned her Master’s Degree in Forensic Science, Crime Scene Investigation, from the University of New Haven, CT, in 1996. In 1999, she received her second Master’s Degree in Forensic Science from Fitchburg State College, MA.
Georgia had been recognized as a Fellow by the American Board of Forensic Nurses. She was an expert in the interpretation and reconstruction of crime scenes and had written a number of articles and book chapters on evidence collection and forensic photo-documentation of crime scenes. From 2001 to the 2016 she has served as an Adjunct Faculty Member to Undergraduate and Graduate Forensic Programs for Boston College and from 1995 to the present as an Instructor for the Massachusetts DPH Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program. Since 1997, she had, among many other cases, painstakingly reconstructed a blood drenched murder scene, a motor vehicle homicide accident, and a rogue police shooting. She testified as an expert witness for both the prosecution and defense in medical malpractice and criminal cases.
