This is a short hair forensics lab. Students must compare different hair samples to figure out the "cat-napper" in a kidnapping scenario. This is good for an introduction to a high school forensics class, or for a lesson on the integumentary system in a high school anatomy class. Included is a description of how to prepare the lab and the answer key for the suspects and a link/QR code to reach additional online resources about hair forensics.
