It is the policy of the police department to do regular debriefings. You will provide a written summary of your activity for the designated time period.

Include the following information in your typed report.

  1. Describe what you saw at the crime scene and give your interpretation of the evidence found there. Be specific.

  2. (Do this for your first report only.)

  3. Tell who you have questioned and describe what information you received from that person. Analyze what this information may mean for the case.

  4. Tell how you think the department should proceed with the case.



Be sure to read the notes of other detectives to discover new evidence about the crime. 1/26/10- On my first day of working on the missing library loot project I was able to see that in my section of the crime scene there was a small piece of what looked like cream-colored yarn, not frayed at all and perfectly in tact. Next there was some white powder that had a scent like baby powder but I am not quite sure. There was also some semi-long grass it was extremely green at the top and brown at the bottom. It was not flattened so I believe it was not stepped on by shoes but maybe fell out of a container or something similar. Also there was a lot of dirt with tiny white spots mixed in which were in tiny parts which lead me to the fact that it was stepped on and stuffed in tiny parts of a shoe and fell out. That is what I saw on the first day in my certain section of the crime scene.



02/2/10 Today I worked on the Hand Writing Analysis with Niki Chiki. We found Mrs. Riggs as a prime suspect. We also made a chart on her notebook showing each way to identify writing pieces. We started filling it out for some of the suspects from West Vincent. That is what I did today.

02/09/10- Today I worked on Hand Writing Analysis with Niki Chiki. We made a chart for the crime scene note and mrs. Riggs on Microsoft Excel. Tomorrow we will work on doing the chart for all the other suspects. Niki thought of an idea for a test. It is to have all the suspects write the same note on the same material with the same pen. This is basically what I did today.

02/18/10- This is a chart that Niki Chiki and I made. We bolded the main suspects from West Vincent. We determined these main suspects because their handwriting is most similar to the crime scene note. We had mrs. van Guilder make a sample and we believe that her handwriting is very similar. We will conduct the test that Niki Chiki came up with at some point to determine whether Goode and Riggs are still main suspects. We did not get to take a look at East Vincents sample yet so if anyone from east vincent can, please post! That is what we did today and came up with.

4/20/10- I have recently interviewed Mrs. Seibert with Niki Chiki, Genius Cross, Mia Lake and Susan Hoops. I also interviewed Mr. Lucas but with just Susan Hoops and Mia Lake. Today I typed up all of the questions we asked Mr. Lucas and his answers. I also typed up the notes. I noticed that he does not really show any body language that would give anything away. Mrs. Seibert however was very interesting in the way she started tapping the counter and was kind of nervous. I also noticed that she kept looking at a piece of paper as if she planned what her answers were going to be. Mrs. Seibert also mentioned the fact that she has seen Kendra Goode hanging suspiciously around the library. It was as if she was trying to throw us off. She also said that a couple days later a video disapeared. She kept on going back on her word though because she said then that it could just be kids. I believe Mrs. Seibert is a prime suspect of who commited the crime.


4/30/10- I have decided on the suspect that I believe commited the crime. I believe it was Mrs. Vanguilder. Here are my reasons: 1. The grass near the door next to her room that leads out is pulled out and disrupted. 2. The smell test shows a connection. They both smell like vanilla (both as in the crime scene smell and her perfume). 3. She drinks diet coke which is what the liquid in the cup was. 4. She has the marker that was used on the note in her room. 5. Her handwriting is extremely similar to the crime scene note. 6. Visits East Vincent to see and discuss with Mrs. Nitsche. These are reasons why I suspect Mrs. Vanguilder.
