Delete isn't enough anymore. Consider the case of Robert Johnson, the former Newsday publisher who, prosecutors allege, used a software program called Evidence Eliminator to rid his computers of CP. Pressing ''delete'' makes files invisible, perhaps, but it doesn't make them gone. Making files gone has become a booming industry unto itself. Sales of Evidence Eliminator run in the millions of dollars each year, says Andrew Churchill, managing director of Robin Hood Software of Britain - and it's just one of more than a dozen ''file shredder'' or ''anti-forensic'' products on the market...

Three days before police say he murdered an Idaho family, Joseph Duncan bragged online about an encrypted, tell-all journal that wouldn’t be broken into for decades. He figured technology would catch up in 30 years, “and then the world will know who I really was, and what I really did, and what I really thought,” he wrote May 13. Evidence seized at Duncan’s home last year for another case suggests he may have been keeping such a journal. At least one compact disc and a portion of his hard drive were encrypted well enough that one of the region’s top computer forensic specialists couldn’t access it...

"People use the computer for everything from record keeping, bill paying and shopping, and along with that convenience comes all of the associated crimes of yesterday." Last month, Jones retired after 31 years with the Virginia State Police. But less than two weeks later, he accepted a job with the Hampton Police Division to help detectives investigate crimes...
