Georg Popp (1932)


German chemist and university teacher in Frankfurt who formulated Popp's principle: "The differences in soils from place to place provide valuable clues to prove the link between a suspect and a crime scene."

Popp belonged to the founders of microscopic and scientific criminology and thus "modern legal medicine" at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Frankfurt am Main.

He died on 15 February 1943 in Urberach, aged 81.
