      Abstract: Dear Forensic Scientists,
      We are here with the last issue of the Bulletin of Forensic Medicine in 2018. May 2019 bring health, happiness and success to all colleagues working at the field forensics. We are happy and proud with the fact that, apart from being scanned by international indexes such as DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals); the Bulletin of Legal Medicine is currently the only forensic science journal among other fields in the country indexed within the scope of Tübitak Ulakbim TR Index once after the Council of Universities issued a condition according to the Application Requirements for Associate Professors of having an article published in a nationally reviewed journal indexed by ULAKBIM.
      We are happy to share with you the studies from different disciplines within the scope of the forensic science in this new issue of our journal.
      We would like to ask you to check carefully the journal writing rules while sending your articles to our journal. Besides the valuable studies on forensic science field, we believe that “Forensic Literature in the World and in Turkey” would influence us all and would fill an obvious gap.
      Life continues to show us the importance of merit in the field of forensic sciences and how science is open to new horizons in the fields of literature and art.
      We wish to raise the eligibility of our journal higher by being aware of the fact that being scientific is the only way to build up a future for forensic sciences, and we wish to continue to be a common platform sharing the latest studies in Forensic Medicine and Forensic Science areas...

  • Risk Factors Predicting Juvenile Recidivism

    • Authors: Ayhan Erbay, Zeynep Gülüm
      Pages: 162 - 168
      Abstract: Objective: The identification of risk factors for juvenile recidivism is crucial to prevent recurrent juvenile delinquency. The aim of the present study is to determine the variables that predict juvenile recidivism. In this regard, it is aimed to reveal predictive factors of juvenile recidivism by comparing one-time offenders with three and more time offenders. Materials and Methods: In order to determine the factors that predict juvenile recidivism, data set derived through a retrospective analysis of social inquiry reports from Istanbul Child Court and Istanbul Child Criminal Court where adjudication held between 2005-2015. Social Inquiry Reports about at least three-time offenders (n=200) and one-time offenders (n=200) were examined. Data were classified into the main risk factors. Logistic regression analysis was used to determine risk factors that predict juvenile recidivism. Results: It is found that risky peer groups, spend time in internet cafe, school dropout have most significant prediction on juvenile recidivism. In addition, it is also found that number of siblings, age in the first delinquent behavior, weakness of familial sharing and communication and drug abuse have significant effect on juvenile recidivism. Conclusion: It is understood that juveniles who are between the age of 12-15, being one-time offender, having risky peer group, spending most of the time in internet cafe, and dropped out of the school most likely turned into recidivist. It is important for the protection of the child, as well as for the community, that the family, community and authorities should take the necessary precautions to ensure that the...

    • Authors: Ahmet Turla, Elif Sazak Uygul, Meltem Zekioğulları, Berna Aydın
      Pages: 169 - 173
      Abstract: Objective: In this study, it is aimed to analyze what effect we have on the prolonged judicial proceeding in the field of forensic medicine and to discuss the results. Materials and Methods: In this study; legal/medical files of 232 cases which were sent to Ondokuz Mayıs University Faculty of Medicine, Forensic Medicine Department for medicolegal report preparation in 2017 were examined retrospectively. All the steps in the period between the date of the demand letter to request medicolegal report and the date of prepared report was sent from the hospital were examined separately. The obtained data were analyzed with SPSS software package (Version 15.0). Results: The mean time between the date of application to our department and the date of the report was prepared is 11,4±26,9 days, the mean time between the date of the report was prepared with the date of report was signed and sent to judicial authorities is 3,8±2,8 days. The mean time of requested consultations from other departments for 73 cases is 5,8±17,9 days. The mean time between requesting and resulting of radiological or medical workup for 12 cases who were scheduled for workup is 18,2±20,8 days. Conclusion: No matter how small the effect of reporting process in prolonged judicial proceedings, we think it is important shortening this period which is in our responsibility for reducing the victimization of people.

  • The Detective Fiction: Forensic Literature in Turkey and The World with
           Its Implacable Historical Background

    • Authors: Reyyan Ağaoğlu, Gökhan Oral
      Pages: 180 - 189
      Abstract: Language and discourse constitute a whole; literature, which forms a part of discourse through literary works and suggests an idea about so many facts just like historical, social and psychological events, is studied by other disciplines besides Linguistics; Forensic Science, having a multidisciplinary feature, is one of them. As the detective fiction forms a part of literature, the relationship of this part with Forensic Sciences inevitably remains at the forefront. Throughout the emergence of human beings, crime occupies a place in the life of the mankind and this issue manifests itself in literary works. The detective fiction, formed through crime-criminal-detective triangle, is a source by which Forensic Sciences profit. This study is carried out to investigate developmental stages of the detective fiction by assessing the position of the detective fiction in Turkish and world literature. In the scope of the study, a literature review was made and developmental stages of the detective fiction in Turkish and world literature were traced. In this regard, a qualitative study was prepared and a chronological schema which reveals the most important and lively works of Turkish and world literature was created. At the end of the study, it was learned that the detective fiction emerged through police power and the policemen and the detectives, who had left their marks in history, set light to literary works which still remain a mystery.

  • The Effect of Neuroanatomic Development in Childhood and Adolescents to
           The Juvenile Criminal Responsibility

    • Authors: Abdulkadir Yıldız
      Pages: 190 - 200
      Abstract: Technological and conceptual developments in recent years have enabled the establishment of the relationship between the structural and functional maturation of the adolescents brain and adolescents behavior. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) studies have shown that white matter in the frontal region and myelination are significantly lower in children than in adults. The construction of gray and white matter continues until early adulthood, including adolescence. The thickness and maturation of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, which performs impulse control, judgment, and decision making, is the region that reaches the adult level at the latest. The increase in white matter reflects the increase in myelination associated with age related cognitive processes. In adolescence, significant changes occur in the dopamine receptor concentration and distribution in the pathways between the limbic system in which emotions, reward and punishment experiences are treated and the prefrontal cortex, the chief of brain executive functions. Studies on the serotonergic system, which has significant effects on many behaviors such as mood, sleep, anxiety, impulsivity, have shown that the restructuring of serotonergic neurotransmission continues throughout childhood and adolescence. These findings indicate that many complex cognitive processes do not complete their development until early adulthood. The literature suggests that adolescents are inadequate in moral, social, legal reasoning, judgment, decision making, and impulse control, which have an important role in assessing criminal responsibility in adolescence due to neuroanatomical and neurochemical changes.
