Principles of Investigative Documentation, Second Edition, came out yesterday. A collaboration between Philip Becnel, Alexandra Becnel, and former-Dinolt-investigator-turned-attorney Scott Krischke, the book details how to document an investigation using what Philip originally coined as the “Five Principles of Investigative Documentation.” The authors reworked the Second Edition into a pseudo-memoir in Philip’s voice. It includes new chapters on writing about race and gender, as well as legal principles like confidentiality, hearsay, and the duty to preserve evidence. You can pick up a copy here.
