Words that I have learnt from the McCanns case:
Arguido
Coloboma
Rogatory
Low Copy DNA
Cadaver dogs
Commentariat
Cyber-sleuthing
Internet related words like:
Astro-turfing, Forum, Post, Thread, Troll, Sock-puppet, Internaut, OP (opinion poster) are very relevant.
I imagine this case has propelled many people who would otherwise have stuck with traditional media, onto the internet. As one forumite said: "This is the first interactive crime investigation in history".
Myself I have learned to upload things from photobucket and a little bit of html and other internet skills as a result of my interest in this case.
Any other suggestions welcome
