    What happens after a home invasion

    More specifically, cops have taken info and photos, collected evidence, cut out blood stained carpet, etc - do you have to vacate the premises? how long? are you given an opportunity to gather a bag or two, or is your entire home considered evidence?

    A lot depends on the outcome of the invasion. Normally at least with the fatal one we dealt with we were able to be back in the house in about 8 hours after LE did their thing. We werent back that soon cuz we were at the hospital but the neighbor that stayed at our house while LE was here said the tape came down and they left after about 8 hours.

    They wont release it until they think theres nothing else to be gotten evidence wise though. When they take the tape down and the LE guard away and leave nothing they find after that is admissible in court. The scene is forever tainted after that point, according to the law and no evidence they would find once they left is worth a spit in court.

    Oh and they likely wont cut out blood stained carpet or drywall or anything like that except to take a sample and a lot of photos of it. Ours was covered with what it was covered with when we left for the hospital, nothing cleaned cut out only some blood soaked clothing taken and the floor covered from wall to wall in finger print dust.

    If its a bad scene you are likely looking at a couple of days of cleaning up if you able before you would want to go back in.

    Would homeowners insurance cover carpet replacement?

    I cant say Nick. We didnt try. We have hardwood floors, and there was a hole in the drywall in a wall. The fatality was a member of my family. We stayed out of the house until after the funeral other than to come back in and get a few things we just had to have. I finally came in a did the clean up myself. Having a stranger do it didnt feel right to me. Doesnt make any sense I know but I wasnt really capable of making sense right at that time.

    I suppose maybe insurance might pay for it. As I said I dont know. That was the last thing on my mind at that time.

    Wow, I was anticipating an answer from a LEO's perspective. Very sorry you experienced that on a personal level; more-so your loss - I know that never heals.

    Quite frankly the only thing I care about is getting my carpet replaced and my bedroom door and jamb replaced. I am safe, my wife is safe--that is all that matters. BG? What BG? Psychological trauma--bullturd. You enter my house forcibly, you will not leave a well person. And my aim is clear and unmistakable---the most lethal combination of firearm and cartridge and center mass--want to call it stopping the threat?--fine. I know and you know what I am doing and most likely given distance and accuracy and lethality---yada yada yada.

    You might consider removing that burr from under your saddle, kelcarry. You seem wound up a mite too tightly in a few of your latest posts.

    When and if twinkle toes in the whitehouse and every blessed politician agreeing with him is out of there I can maybe think that this country just might have a second chance. Right now this country is going down the toilet--just wait for fat thighs hillary. Do you notice that according to the news everything is tuning the corner for our grand economic recovery--how quickly an uncontrollable debt is eating at the very fabric of what this country is about and this socialist moslem is making sure we are just one more of the unwashed masses in the world. And I guess I am suppose to feel good and koombayah?. I can only do three things. 1) I can vote, which is almost as useless as a teat on a boar hog on a national level and 2) I can damn well make sure that in my house no one, absolutely no one is going to enter without my permission and feel very good about it 3) I can live in SC the first state to actually tell the federal government to pound salt (did not turn out very well but at least they tried) and I live among like-minded people. The rest of you can go stick your head in the sand for all I care---and watch the disintegration of the US take place.

    ...in times like these and the worse ones ahead, the value of true friends will become a lot more clear than it has since the depression days in this country...value in having them...value in being one...and value in not running off the ones you have by taking our troubles out on those who have nothing to do with causing them....

    A lot of us are pissed off with our government right now, but the true measure of a man is how you handle the bad times, not the good ones.

    Drink De-caf for a few weeks. Works for me.

    A home invasion will result in the home becoming a crime scene to one degree of arother. If there is no shooting, and no death it's a simple indoors scene where crime scene techs gather evidence, and detectives do a canvass, and followup the investigation. Some officers will offer assistance to the family with finding somewhere to stay, and future security methods.

    If there is a shooting involved it gets a mite more complicated. In this case it becomes a full blown crime scene. There will be an intense investigation. With a break in the scene evolves from the crime of robbery/assault/burglary. From a shooting involved home invasion the investigation will evolve from the point of death, or serious assault. It will unfold as the above example, but a much more intense investigation. Every death investigation is concluded on it's own merit. A death investigation requires specific methods, and requires meticulas, and very detailed work. This will take more time than an investigation without a death. The crime scene will be held to a higher standard, the crime scene will be physically larger, there will be more detectives, and officers assigned to the initial investigation.

    Murder is a capitol crime. In theory the guilty person may forfiet his life for his actions. Capitol often go to trial. Every aspect of the investigation will be closely examined at trial. Any avenue of investigation missed by the police will be introduced as evidence to impeach the police or their investigation. As well as used to provide alternate theory in order to create reasonable doubt. The crime scene may last for hours, the location may be sealed and the scene last for days. When a person is a victim of a crime in their home, the police can not barge in and take over the home for their investigation. They must be invited in by the owner. The alternative is the police will secure the scene, and get a search warrant.
