I’m working on a biology question and need a sample draft to help me study.
For this discussion you will present the facts of the case and the conclusions that you have drawn from them. You will then get to see if others investigating the same case and the same evidence are in agreement with your analysis of the evidence and your conclusions.
This assignment requires two posts, each completed individually.
First Post – Due Thursday
What is your hypothesis for who committed the murder? What do you think happened to Chelsie Vapolt?
What evidence do you have from the timeline, autopsy, hair analysis, body fluids, blood, and DNA to support this?
What evidence do you have from the timeline, autopsy, hair analysis, body fluids, blood, and DNA that may point to a different suspect(s)?
What facts of the case are you certain of? Which do feel might be true, but lack evidence to support them?
Second Post – Due Sunday
Please read the posts and choose one classmate’s post to which to respond. Try to respond to someone that hasn’t yet received a response.
Do you have the same hypotheses for who committed the murder? If not, what is your hypothesis?
Analyze their evidence and facts. Which ones do you agree on? Which ones (if any) do you disagree on? For full credit, explain your reasoning.
Choose one piece of evidence. What is a potential innocent or alternate explanation, other than murder, for this evidence to have been found where it was?
Example: The suspect owns an orange cat and an orange cat hair was found on the victim’s coat. However, the victim’s neighbor also owns an orange cat. Therefore, the cat hair could have been from the neighbor’s cat.
