Some people believe that crimes; especially murder, are solved by witnesses, security cameras, and confessions of the accused, but there may be evidence that no one notices, such as using an ant to solve crimes.
Entomology is used to solve many crimes; including murder. Perhaps this crime tells us the role of insects in solving crimes.
In Dubai, UAE, a woman body was found in one of the roads. At first, the husband’s statements were that the victim had died in an ordinary run-over accident. However, the examination proved a presence of an ant; a type that lives in certain areas, which confirms the husband’s lies. The presence of the ant revealed after investigation that the murder took place in this area. The body was then transferred to another area to hide the features of the crime.
The investigation authorities confronted the husband with these facts, which prompted him to confess to killing his wife. So the ant contributed in revealing the killer; therefore legal measures were taken against him.
