Abstract: Event Analysis is a specific crime scene analysis method in use today. Its purpose is to objectively define what happened in alleged criminal events and in what order it happened. This article compares Event Analysis methodology to the analysis method known as Multilinear Events Sequencing (MES). MES is an established methodology used by safety specialists, failure analysts, and other scientists to evaluate unique and rare events. This comparison will effectively demonstrate that the two methods are one and the same in theory, process, and purpose.
