A WAC virtual event
Go behind the scenes of crime investigation
Do you love CSI shows where they scour the crime scene, collect irrefutable evidence, and find the missing pieces that solve the case? Retired Fingerprint Examiner Lynne Dean will talk about the real world of evidence collection and share information and photos of actual crime scenes she’s processed. Homicides, robberies, auto theft, and more … including her very first homicide, the Green River Killer case.
Learn about the “inside” workings of a forensic fingerprint laboratory, decipher your own fingerprints, and try your hand at solving a case. But what’s a case without evidence? A special evidence bag will be waiting for you at the Club the day before the event. And you’ll have a fun homework assignment to complete beforehand. Due to graphic photos & information, this event is not appropriate for children. Age 18-plus only.
