Crime Scene: Biological Evidence
Part 1: Find, Identify, and Preserve
One of the aspects of forensic science that can help solve crimes for years is biological evidence. Consider a crime scene that your team might have been called to this week. The supervisor of your crime scene unit wants to see what you have learned. For Part 1, identify at least 5 different types of biological evidence and explain how to collect and preserve it.
Part 2: Significance of Evidence
In Part 1 you identified various types of biological evidence your unit located at a crime scene. Your supervisor wants you to write a report in which you explain the significance of the various types of evidence as it relates to the investigation of the crime.
Write a 350-word summary of the evidence collected and its use in forensic toxicology.
