Applied Science – Crime Scene Investigators

On Wednesday 26th February, Year 13 Applied Science students became Crime Scene Investigators for the day.

At 13:30 GMT, Trinity’s CSI Team was called in to collect evidence from a murder scene at a Nottingham Trent University student residence. The victim, Mr D.Mise, was found murdered on his dining room floor. A second victim, Mrs I.D. Clair, was found murdered in the bar.

Trinity CSI produced crime scene sketches and took photographs of the evidence they found. They then collected the evidence, which included blood samples found next to the victim’s body, fingerprints, hair and fibres and what was thought to be from the murder weapon – bullet casings found in each room. Trinity CSI bagged up all evidence appropriately, ensuring not to contaminate it.

Nottingham Trent University Police were pleased with the due care taken by the team to ensure the continuity of evidence.

Mrs Buxton and her Year 13 Applied Science group would like to thank Catherine Tuckey and her team at Nottingham Trent University for setting up the crime scene at the university’s Crime Scene Training Facility for our students to complete their coursework.

The students fully enjoyed a very unique experience!
