*Ultimate Betrayal (Season 4 Episode 3)
In 1995, Debora Green lost two children in a fire that burnt down her Kansas City, Missouri mansion. Routine procedures occurred and both Debora and her previous husband Michael Farrar were questioned. Suspicions arose when Debora refused to cooperate during questioning. Police then questioned Michael and uncovered disturbing stories proving Debora was dangerous. She had poisoned Michael during their separation and told him he would only get custody of the children over their dead bodies. Debora's singed hair and the initial location of the fire proved her involvement in the arson.
*With Every Breath (Season 4 Episode 12)
Merril Bahe and Florena Woody grew up in starkly different conditions on an Indian reservation that crossed the borders of New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah. The couple soon engaged, and they moved into the Woody family home. In 1993, Florena started complaining of muscle aches in her back and shoulders and her doctor gave her antibiotics for her condition. Florena later died; she simply drowned in the fluid generated by her illness. Doctors had no idea what had killed her. Meanwhile, Merril Bahe started experiencing similar symptoms and on the day of Florena's funeral, he was sent to the hospital, but died on the way there. Investigators found deer mice tested positive for a new form of the Hantavirus. They determined that contact with the feces of the deer mice was what had caused the disease and that when the feces dried, the deadly microbe became airborne.
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.
