Today students got to test evidence found at the crime scene. Students worked their way around class and conducted chromatography testing on the brown markers and the mysterious brown stain found at the crime scene.
Students also tested the mystery thread found at the crime scene. We have a flame test lab where they compare known wool and cotton samples from the suspects jackets and sweaters.
Students also examined the torn cloth found in the trash that had a cologne smell. They compared this to the suspects cologne samples.
Additionally we did a thread sample and tape lift lab. When everything was complete students took the time to discuss their findings and started to point evidence toward suspects.
