In 1902, while studying law in Munich, Robert Heindl (1883–1958) read in an English magazine about the use of a fingerprint classification system and wrote to India for details. He stressed to German police authorities that they should use fingerprints for identifying people, and the first fingerprint bureau in Germany was set up in Dresden on April 1, 1903. However, Heindl still met resistance because many German police forces still thought the Bertillon system was superior. Nevertheless, in 1903, three other German police forces commenced fingerprinting: Augsburg, Hamburg, and Nuremburg.
Bewick died on November 8, 1828, at Gateshead, and he was buried in Ovingham churchyard, in the parish where he was born. Concerning the External Physiological Examination of the Integumentary System (1823) Joannes Evanelista Purkinje was a Bohemian, and part of his thesis published on December 22, 1823, dealt in considerable detail with the functions of ridges, furrows, and pores; additionally, he illustrated and described nine fingerprint patterns: one arch, one tent, two loops, and five types of whorl.
It was a good clear imprint with ample ridge detail to afford a positive identification, but Faulds considered it to be a “smudge” and cast doubts on its status. The Strattons were convicted of the murder and duly hanged. There was a great deal of circumstantial evidence in the case, perhaps strong enough to have gained a conviction without the fingerprint evidence, but this was the first time fingerprints had been used in a murder trial in England, and experts at the Yard were extremely delighted: the marvelous system initiated in 1901 was vindicated in this glorious triumph.
