NORWICH – Blood was found in Jennifer Ramsaran's van and in her home, although the source of that blood was not positively identified by the New York State Police forensic investigator, according to testimony given Thursday at the Chenango County Courthouse.
In the ninth day of the Ganesh R. Ramsaran murder trial, Jason Miller of the New York State Police testified that he searched through Jennifer Ramsaran’s minivan at the Chenango County Sheriff’s Office on Dec. 17, 2012. The van had been found one day prior by Jennifer’s father, Thomas Renz.
Miller said after he was provided a signed search warrant to search the vehicle, he photographed the van’s exterior and then worked his way to the inside. An inventory was conducted of the contents of the vehicle, and if there was anything found that may have been evidentiary, it was bagged and labeled. The van was then checked for blood, hairs and dusted for fingerprints, he said.
From his observation of the exterior, Miller said the van had a “heavy layer of dirt and road dust.”
