Task #1 (Profiling Practice)
Step #1 – Yesterday we finished our review and looked over profiles 1 & 2 in the Crime Scene Profiling Activity. Today you will be analyzing Crime Scene Practice #3. You will have 30 minutes to go over the crime scene and answer the questions below. After the 30 minutes we will be analyzing the scene as a class.
Step #2 – Activity Prep
You may work in pairs, but each student must turn in their own work. We will be looking back at a mock crime scene sketch (#3 from Crime Scene Profiling Activity). Then in pairs I want you to look at the crime scene objectively yourself and answer the following questions:
- – What location is the crime scene at?
- – What method was used to commit the homicide?
- – Were there any witnesses?
- – How many victims?
- – What direction are the body/bodies facing?
- – What evidence would you collect at the scene?
- – Did the event appear to be planned?
- – Based on the evidence only, what actions do you think the suspect took?
- – Provide a profile of the person law enforcement should be looking for.
