Alan Hunter: O + Damien Thorne: A – Greta Denson: A + David Timmons: B – Anastasia Brooks: A – Julia Wallace: A + Charles Richards: B + Crime Scene #1: o + Crime Scene #2: A – Crime Scene #3: B + As you can see, several suspects have the same type of blood that was found at the scene.
As you can see, Alan’s DNA matches one type of blood, and Damien’s DNA matches up with another. This proves that they were both at the scene.
Here are the handwriting samples from each suspect.
As you can see, the letter O’s look the same in both the sample and the actual note. This shows that Damien wrote this note.
As you can see, there are two letters on the sample that look like the ones on the actual note, making it David.
As you can see, the letters circled in the sample and the actual note are very similar. This proves that Charles wrote these notes.
At the scene of the crime, a water bottle was found. We have dusted this bottle for fingerprints, and we retrieved prints from both Damien and David. We found two from Damien and one from David.
Alan Hunter: Blue fibers & blonde hair Damien Thorne: Blue fibers & blonde hair Greta Denson: No significant fibers David Timmons: Blue fibers & blonde hair Anastasia Brooks: Blonde hair* Julia Wallace: No significant fibers Charles Richards: Blue fibers & blonde hair *Although Anastasia had blonde hair (the same color as Alan’s hair) on her, she isn’t being questioned for it. She was his girlfriend, and she will obviously have his hair on her. Alan was wearing blue jeans on the night of the crime, which produces blue fibers. He also had blonde hair. Damien, David and Charles all have blonde hair and blue fibers, which means they were near David the night of the crime.
We came to this conclusion because Damien and Charles were the ones who had the most evidence working against them. Damien’s blood, DNA, fingerprints, notes and water bottle were all found at the scene. Charles’ blood and notes were found there as well.
