Campers Learning How to Solve Murder Crimes

Detectives not old enough to drive are helping solve crime at Audubon State Park.
Detectives not old enough to drive are helping solve crime at Audubon State Park. This group wrapped up a five day Junior Forensic Science Camp today.

The eight to 15-year-olds are learning more about law enforcement by taking part in life-like scenarios. They're solving a murder, which started with a drug deal gone bad.

In doing so, they're learning how to take fingerprints, extract DNA, and take evidence samples.

"I'm hoping they gain more respect for the law enforcement in the area," said Camp Director Michael Gipson. "And hopefully, some of them are going to want to go into a career in law enforcement."

The second session of the camp starts next week.
