The Other Crime Scene STEM Integrated Project

In a violent crime, much of the evidence may be found on the victim and suspect. In these circumstances, the body becomes a crime scene. Crimes of violence are usually considered a more important type of crime than a crime merely involving private property or the public peace, so realizing that evidence may be present and taking the time and effort…

The Body As A Crime Scene STEM Integrated Project

In any assault, whether it's a punch in the nose or a murder, the BODY is a crime scene in its own right. It contains physical evidence that can be examined in place, documented, collected and then subjected to further detailed analysis in the crime laboratory. When done in a careful, methodical manner an unbiased story of what happened can be dis…
