Interview: Behind the bloodstains with Jo Millington

At CrimeCon UK in Glasgow, Jo Millington was interviewed by Wendy Cee for a special edition of the award-winning podcast, 'Foul Play: Crime Series' in collaboration with CBSReality.

The Foul Play: True Crime podcast has been running since 2008 and takes the listener on a deep dive into some of the world's most gripping cases. It has become a must-listen for true crime aficionados seeking a thought-provoking and immersive experience.

In this episode, Jo talks about her incredible forensic science journey. From her early days with the Edinburgh Police Forensics Laboratory, honing her Bloodstain Pattern Analysis (BPA) knowledge and skills with Miami Dade Police, working on high-profile cases in the Homicide Unit of the Forensic Science Service in London, to moving to the private sector and starting her own consultancy Millington Hingley and BPA education/training company, SPATTER/ED. She also discusses her impactful work with Inside Justice, a charity focused on investigating wrongful convictions, her work setting up Europe's first forensic science service dedicated to investigating crimes against animals and the important work of her four-pawed support team.

As we delve into the complex world of forensics, Jo shares her insights on how science plays a critical role in solving crimes and sometimes correcting wrongful convictions. Fans of popular crime dramas are also in for a treat, as Jo peels back the curtain on her role as a forensic advisor for TV shows like Silent Witness and The Sister Boniface Mysteries.
