Project #88881 - Project

Task 1: Using the ITT Tech Virtual Library, locate a news account or other written account of the crime: the abduction and murder of Jessica Lunsford. This should be detailed enough to provide the information required for processing a crime scene and locating the appropriate amount of evidence. You need to identify the location where Jessica Lunsford was held following her abduction as well as the site where her body was buried. Your project will be based on these facts and the proper processing of these scenes.

To research the murder of Jessica Lunsford, start by researching John Couey, the convicted killer of Jessica Lunsford. Follow this path: ITT Tech Virtual Library> School of Study> Criminal Justice> Databases> LexisNexis Academic. ProQuest, ProQuest Criminal Justice, ProQuest Newstand, and the Criminology data bases are also helpful reference sources. Task 2: Create a mock crime scene scenario based on the crime. Take notes as you would if you were a forensic technician in the field. You may type your notes into your Word document or scan your hand-written notes into a file and submit those. Task 3: Document your activities from “Call Out and Briefing” through “Final Walk Through.” Task 4: Process your crime scene in the manner described in Chapter 6: Crime Scene Processing. Indicate whether or not a search warrant would be required for the scene. If so, describe the process. Task 5: Locate, collect, and process the evidence. You should include at least three of the following types of evidence, processed, collected, and documented as appropriate. You should submit an evidence report of each item used in your case. Fingerprint evidence Blood evidence Trace evidence Impression evidence Firearms evidence o GSR—Discuss the process required for your case, including suspect/victim processing. o Trajectory—Include a simulation of the use of a trajectory kit. Entomological evidence—Discuss the role of the evidence in your case and provide a description of proper processing methods. Physical evidence—Discuss the role of physical evidence and explain the difference between class and individual characteristics. Task 6: Document the role of forensic photography in the processing of your crime scene. Task 7: Write a crime scene report on the crime scenario that you have developed using your notes and the appropriate report format. Task 8: Create a final crime scene diagram using SmartDraw. The location of each element of evidence should be indicated on your crime scene diagram. The deliverables for this project include: Article or other source for the crime, including a summary of the crime and a reference citation in the reference list Field notes, including the rough sketch from your crime scene investigation Crime scene report detailing the elements of the crime, tasks performed by personnel, and the evidence collected Evidence report for each item of evidence Description of the role of forensic photography that would be required (may be included in crime scene report) Crime scene diagram using Smart Draw Submission Requirements: Submit the above requirements as a Word document. The project will be evaluated on the following components: Completion of required tasks and deliverables, use of SmartDraw, proper collection and documentation of evidence, use of proper grammar, and overall quality of writing. Due: Week 6 Grading Weight: 25%
