As of January 2017, episodes of Forensic Files can be found FREE on You Tube and through various pay streaming services. The two episodes in this collection can also be purchased as DVDs in the Forensic Files : Historic Cases Collection V1 (available at Amazon or other media sellers).
This two video worksheet purchase focuses on new forensic methods and technology that were first used to solve murders that might otherwise have remained unsolved. These are great episodes to demonstrate to students the value of science and technology when solving real world crimes.
*Cats, Flies, & Snapshots (Season 6, Episode 27)
In 1989, 19-year-old Lori Auker left her Pennsylvania home for work, but never arrived. She left behind her infant son, a family who loves her and a job she enjoys. Police investigators viewed this case as a missing persons or possible homicide and focus on her estranged husband Robert Auker. It takes space-age technology, cat hairs and insects to pinpoint the image of the woman's abductor before the real story can be told.
*Over a Barrel (Season 9, Episode 14)
California police had several suspects in the robbery and brutal murder of an elderly couple. Unfortunately, the forensic evidence was inconclusive, and the crime went unsolved. Ten years later, a determined forensic scientist used material from a dentist's office to uncover ballistic evidence which had been overlooked. He not only solved the crime, he also made scientific history.
Questions on the assignments go in order and will help students remain focused on key forensic science topics. Two extended response questions are on the back of each worksheet (description, sequence, compare/contrast, etc...) which are perfect for reflection on the importance of these ground breaking cases.
Both worksheets are given as MS-Word documents which will allow easy modifying to best fit the needs of your students.
