(left to right) Seniors Ash Behrens, Sajjad Razvi, and Nick Manzoni investigate a fake crime scene as part of Marci Phillips’ Honors Forensics class. This scene, which was set up in the back of room 214, was designed to teach students about crime scene photography.

“I set up seven crime scenes around the building, one for each group,” Phillips said. “They had to use the skills we talked about in class to take pictures and turn them in to me via Twitter.”

Each group of students was assigned a dossier with documents detailing the context of the crime and the supplies the students would need. They were required to take a whole scene photo, a mid-range photo, and close up photo with a ruler in it. An amalgamation of different crime-related objects were placed at each location.

“I have a box that’s like my murder box and it has random stuff in it and I divide it up into seven,” Phillips said. “So it could be a botched drug deal or maybe a suspected homicide. I even have one scene that has a little kid’s shoe in it to represent a kidnapping.”
