A year later, Mark Twain’s Life on the Mississippi told the story of a murderer who is identified by the use of fingerprints. In 1892, Argentinean police officer Juan Vucetich successfully matched a bloody fingerprint found on the doorpost at a murder scene to the mother of the two victims. It was the first attempt to use fingerprints to identify a killer, and it proved to be accurate: The woman confessed. Exactly a decade later, the famed Alphonse Bertillon, who by this time had become the director of the Paris Police Department’s Bureau of Identification, successfully matched a fingerprint found at a crime scene to prints on file—the first time a fingerprint had been used to solve a crime in which there was no suspect.
