Seniors in Forensic Science class worked hard to solve the Convent Murder Mystery, an in-school CSI Challenge.  From the mock crime scene, they collected evidence; they examined finger prints, blood, hair and fiber samples, ballistic and firearms data; they interviewed suspects; they put their findings together to “arrest” the real culprit -surprise to all — Ms. EF!      A complete gallery of the work of these student detectives and the surprise culprit may be found in our Photo Gallery with this link.
