Bloody fingerprints are important in many cases - especially in murder case. This study compared effectiveness of some reagents which had better quality of developing bloody fingerprints from human skin. Leuco crystal violet(LCV), hungarian red, amido black, coomassie blue, acid violet17, and crowle's double stain were used. Fingerprints were generated in the depletion series, and tissue method was used in applying all reagents. LCV showed the best result in this study.
