It is with great sadness and heartbreak that the Mecanica team was informed on Sunday, March 29th, 2020 that we had lost one of our own.

Janelle Bettini was an integral member of the Mecanica Scientific Team and worked in our Forensic Media Group as a Forensic Animator.

On March 21, 2020, Janelle gave birth to her first child, sweet baby Adaline Bettini. Three days later, Janelle was readmitted for post-delivery complications to which she later succumbed to on Saturday evening.

Janelle leaves behind her incredible husband, Dominic “Dom” Bettini and baby Adaline Bettini who is a healthy, happy little girl and looks very much like her mother. We pray each and every hour for Dom and baby Adaline as well as both of their families so they can find peace, grace, and healing in these difficult times.

The Mecanica Scientific team has lost an incredible member, an incredible human being, and an incredible Mom. We will never forget her. She lives on in our hearts. We love and miss you terribly Janelle!
