*Video is necessary for completion of this worksheet.

As of June 2017, the entire episode is available free on You Tube which could make it ideal for computer lab or homework assignments (technology access provided).

*SLIPPERY MOTIVES (Season 4, Episode 13)
Episode Summary: In 1986, Edward Post left the Omni Hotel in St. Louis and went for a 40-minute jog. Before leaving, he said that he drew a bath for his wife Julie Thigpen-Post. Ed returned and called the front desk, stating that his wife had fallen in the bathtub and was not breathing and she was dead when emergency response arrived. Investigators considered accidental death, until they discovered that Ed had a $700,000 life insurance policy on Julie. A second autopsy found 36 areas of bruising, not noted during the original autopsy. The death was ruled a homicide and Ed Post was charged with the first-degree murder of his wife. The trial ended in 1989, and Ed was found guilty of first-degree murder. After serving six and a half years, Ed admitted to the drowning of his wife.

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).

Thank you for your purchase and for taking the time to leave me positive feedback.
