Kids Crack the Case in Mock Crime Scene

Local News

The kids at the Audubon Junior Forensic Science Camp have been learning how to collect potential evidence from a crime scene all week.

And they’re putting those skills to the test.

Audubon hosts the camp every year for students ten to fifteen years-old.

They all work through a mock crime scene like this one where someone trashed a family reunion party.

They’re collecting evidence like hair fibers, even teeth prints in the cake to narrow down which suspects they’ll need to interrogate.

“Well, I’ve been here four years they always bring something new. We didn’t have the bite marks last time that I remember and also the crime is much different than last year’s. So, there’s something new every year,” said Paige Ford.

The students even processed the evidence themselves in a make-shift crime lab.
