Two potential sources of evidence to analyze:

1. Computer used to upload the PDF file

2. Www.facebook.com archive / law enforcement portal

If you have a forensic image of the computer used to upload the PDF file you can analyze internet access of the Facebook site as well as build a time line of how the PDF file first came to exist on the computer itself before being uploaded to Facebook.

If you have access to Facebook’s law enforcement portal you can download a complete archive of the target Facebook profile which will include evidence of the PDF file being uploaded.

I recommend preserving both the computer and the online Facebook profile in order to connect both sources of evidence.
