Product Description

A murder in a quiet house boat community sets the stage for you and your students to test their forensic knowledge. Students will take on the role of a forensic technician as they analyze hair, fiber, fingerprint, blood, and hand writing evidence to help pin point the killer.. Does your class have what it takes to find the murderer?

Here are a few details from the Police Report:
At 0800 on Tuesday the 18th, local authorities were called to Eagle Nest Harbor in the 1780 block of America St. in the township of Eagle Landing with a report of a body discovered, likely deceased. Officers were met by a Mrs. Leslie Traveler who had initiated the 911 call. Mrs. Traveler told officers that Mr. LaFrank's body and his boat could be found at dock 1A. The officers proceeded to dock 1A and located the vessel the "Winds of Change" and announced their presence three times. After no response and given earlier reports from Mrs. Traveler, officers deemed probable cause was a reasonable assumption and entered the water craft.

Upon entry, the victim, a Mr. Calen R. LaFrank, was found in an arm chair covered in what appeared to be several stab and slash wounds in the main room of the house boat. Next to the victim’s person was a survival style knife covered in what appeared to be blood. On the end table next to the victim was a blood covered note that read, “I told you that I didn’t like xenophobic zealots occupying the docks near my family home. Quit inviting evil into our joyous community.
We are offering you this warning as a courtesy. Fail to comply and we will take very drastic action.” Officers were able to determine at the scene from the trauma to the victim that the victim was deceased. Officers then began to clear the scene of potential threats. Once cleared, the officers established a secure perimeter around the scene and only essential personnel were allowed access to the scene.

This kit provides a unique and complex set of evidence for students to analyze. The kit includes enough evidence and reagents for 15 groups to perform their analysis as well as teacher and student guide master copies.
