Corroborate

Corroboration is confirmation or independent support by additional evidence. Corroborating evidence could also be referred to as “supporting evidence.” For example, if during trial a witness testifies that he saw the defendant enter the bank pointing a .38 caliber Colt revolver, a ballistics report showing that spent shells at the scene came from a .38 caliber Colt would corroborate the witness's testimony.
