*Forensic Files: Charred Remains (Season 2, Episode 8)
Police were investigating a charred body found in a dumpster that had first been shot in the head and then set on fire when a missing person report was filed for a Mary-Lynn Breeden. Police investigated Mary-Lynne's disappearance and found a woman had attempted to withdraw money from Mary-Lynne's account. The woman was identified on the bank camera and was questioned by police. The woman then led police to Christian Cruz. Police found traces of blood in Cruz' car and were able to match it to the charred body through DNA testing of the body's tooth pulp and Breeden's family members.
Questions on the assignment go in order and will help students remain focused on key science topics. Two extended response questions are on the back of the worksheet (description and compare/contrast) which are perfect for reflection and discussion at the conclusion of the video.
The worksheet is given as a MS-Word document which will allow easy modifying to fit your class.
*Besides You Tube, the video needed for viewing can be purchased through a variety of sellers both as physical media or through streaming viewing (including Amazon, Netflix, and Hulu - availability does change).
