Identify and separate the largest maggot specimens from the container Measure the largest maggots Determine the average length Average length = (Length1 + Length2 + + LengthN) / N Refer to the table to estimate the time of death Hair Analysis Five hair evidence in petri dishes Prepare the samples

Observe and compare under microscope Impression Analysis Compare the tire impression evidence to the photos of each suspects vehicles tire treads. Report to the District Attorneys Office In form of PowerPoint, Poster, or a typed report (Word/Pages)

A summary of all of the evidence collected (In Tables) A detailed statement of the results of each analysis Your primary suspect(s) and why What do you think happened?
