Forensic Report: Murder Most Foul Crime Summary: At 6:05 am, a body was discovered in the plant room

of Camberwell Girls Grammar School by security staff. The Victim was deceased. Multiple pieces of possible evidence were left at the scene of the crime, analysed below. The victim fell onto the corner of the shelf in the plant room and suffered fatal injuries to the head as a result. The body will be taken to the morgue and autopsied. Please find enclosed in the envelope photographs and a map in reference to the potential evidence found, the crime scene and surrounding area as well as the victim. The Evidence See enclosed photographs #1 The Evidence #1 photos depict a pot plant on its side on the second shelf in the plant room, with blood splatters on the pot itself as well as the roots of the plant within. This blood could be DNA tested to see that the blood matches the victim, if not then it could very well be the blood of the murderer. If the blood came from the victim it would mean that the impact of the victim with the shelf must have been quite forceful to result in blood splatters on the plants. This leads to the conclusion that the victim was indeed pushed. These blood splatters could also be analysed by a forensic biologist. The Second piece of evidence shown in picture Evidence #2 is a polystyrene cup, a butter knife, a pacer and an eraser. The four items found here should be dusted with carbon for finger prints to determine if they belonged to and were used by the victim. The cup had lipstick marks on it, the same colour of that on the victim, leading us to believe the cup was hers, testing the two lipsticks and also looking at the print left by the lips could determine this. The items are in a way scattered as if they were dropped as opposed to being placed. The knife should be analysed do establish what the knife was used for, and fingerprinted to determine who by. The third piece of evidence labelled Evidence #3 is a broken pot and a pool of blood suspected to have come from the victims head wound. To make sure that the blood does belong to the victim, it should be DNA tested. There are some small splatters of blood on top of some of the broken pot pieces. This means that the pot would have smashed before the victim hit their head which could be a sign of a struggle between the victim and culprit. The fourth piece of evidence is some more blood spatters on the plants. The blood seems to have travelled a fair distance, giving more suggestion to the theory that the victim was pushed. However the blood could be from the perpetrator. A DNA test would determine this. The fifth piece of evidence, Evidence #5 is a note found on the victims person when the scene was investigated. The note reads, Meet me please in the plant room. This note allows many possible occurrences to come to the mind. It can be assumed that the victim was the one receiving the note, however what is not determined is who the first person to the scene was, or which person made the first attack. The writing material could be tested to determine what kind of pen or pencil was used and if there is any connection with the pacer found next to the body.

The evidence pictures in the photo Evidence #6 is that of some Black hair left on the sleeve of the deceased. This hair should be sent to the lab to undergo inspection to see if it matches that of the victim. If not, then we may conclude that the culprit has medium to long, black or dark brown, curly hair. It would also be highly likely that the hair had come from a woman due to its length, or a long haired man. It would be logical to infer that if the hair does not belong to the victim, then the victim would have grabbed it from the murderer as they pushed her. Evidence #7 is a shoeprint. It is a dirty shoeprint, next to the body. It can be assumed that it is of the killer as the victim is not wearing shoes. The footprint should be measured as to get a rough idea of the shoe size belonging to the killer. The eighth piece of evidence is a cola can lying on the floor beside the body. This could have either the finger prints of the victim or the culprit. They should therefore be tested to identify if they match with any other of the fingerprints taken from the scene. The photos entitled Evidence #9all depict, from different angles, two footprints in a pile of soil. The footprints match that of Evidence #7 which could therefore mean that both are from the perpetrator. It would also explain why the footprint in Evidence #7 was a muddy one. As shown on the map, the footprints are coming from the outside of the room, in. the tenth piece of evidence is a wet and muddy footprint on the bottom panel of the door frame of the plant room. It is possible that the criminal after stepping in the mud and pushing the victim attempted to wash his or her feet. Thus explaining the puddle or they could have just stepped in the puddle before exiting. The piece of evidence features in Evidence #11 although hard to see, is very important. It is a set of fingerprints and even a slight palm print. This could lead us straight to the murderer. However if the fingerprints are that of the victim then they were simply pushing open the door. With fingerprint testing, this would all become clear. The final piece of potential evidence are the footsteps leaving the premises. There are some coming out of the doorway which then continue down the corridor as shown on the map. The steps are the same as the ones on the soil and next to the victim. As the footsteps make their way down the corridor they grow further and further apart. This suggests that the person leaving them was in fact running.

It is highly plausible that the victim received the note and went to the plant room. She brought with her a pacer, rubber, a cola can and a cup. They then waited there, had some cola, admired the plants and then the culprit came. They opened the door pressing their hand onto the glass leaving behind them a print. They made their way over to the victim, who was standing at the time near the edge of the shelf. Whilst walking toward the victim they stepped in the soil. They could have potentially got into an argument with the victim or something else that could have provoked such behaviour. The culprit then continued to push the victim who dropped the cup and cola can and grabbed onto the murderers hair in attempting to stop herself from falling. Instead she rips out a small amount of hair and falls onto the corner of the shelf, knocking over some pot plants as she falls, one of which breaks

on the ground. The perpetrator then makes a hasty escape by running out of the room with muddy footprints leaving the victim dead in the plant room.
