Interview Clues: Words that Leave an Investigative Trail: A Reprint from “FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin”
Vincent A. Sandoval (au)
When most people fail to tell the truth, they will omit information, as opposed to telling an outright lie. As such, they often choose words -- whether for a written narrative or during an interview -- that camouflage or conceal the truth. Words used can & do reveal information that may be of substantive value to investigators. In addition, more often than not, the writers or speakers of these words may not realize that they could be “tipping their hands.” This article explains how the analysis of someone’s verbatim words involves scrutinizing structural & linguistic features to discover insight & identify areas of possible deception. It constitutes a tool to help investigators conduct thorough interviews in their quest to arrive at the truth. Investigators can learn to identify & capitalize on those words or phraases that people often use to camouflage or conceal their actions or activities. Also includes an article by Robert C. Wells, “The Art of Investigative Interviewing: Countering the Lie of Omission.” Illus.
