, a worldwide developer and provider of advanced forensic data examination tools for mobile devices and cloud services, was recently used by a private investigator during a civil case that was the aftermath of a sexting/underage sex case investigation which involved a 16-year-old male and a 14-year-old female.
Private investigator Mark Eskridge, who had over 20 years of law enforcement experience before becoming a professional investigator, had access to the male’s mobile device, but quickly found that the male had deleted conversations with the girl after the circumstances of the relationship was revealed to the girl’s parents. With a competitor’s forensic tool, he discovered that only 4,435 text messages were displayed and available on the device. Eskridge then utilized Oxygen Forensic Detective
to analyze the data further on an Apple iPhone 6. Both incoming and outgoing messages were decoded and parsed, and 11,045 total messages were located on the device. Eskridge found that many of the recovered messages were deleted messages which he confirmed by using the built-in SQLite Viewer within Oxygen Forensic Detective.
