In 1856, Sir William Hershel first used fingerprints on Native Contracts. In 1880, Dr. Henry Faulds, published an article in scientific Journal, Nature, discussing fingerprints. In 1882, Gilbert Thompson used fingerprints to prevent forgery. In 1883, Mark Twain wrote Life on the Mississippi, where a murder was identified by the use of fingerprint identification. In 1892, Juan Vucetich made the 1 st criminal fingerprint identification.
The first thing you do is move your finger around on the ink pad, next you lift up your finger, then put a piece of tape on your picture, and pit it on paper.
We used four substances which were baking soda, sugar, corn starch, and salt. You were to identify how they smelled, looked, and reacted when a drop of water, iodine, or vinegar were placed on them.
First you put 2 pieces of plastic plates together, next place them in your mouth, bite down on them, and take it out. Then 1 person in your group is to bite down on a piece of chocolate candy and see which teeth impression matches the chocolate.
Measure your foot on the tape measure. Next divide by.15 and that will give you the height in inches. Then you take that answer and divide by 12 and that will give you your height and feet.
Solving the crime takes a lot of time and patience. There were many clues left at the crime scene such as fingerprints, powdery substances, teeth impressions, and footprints. The reason why the General was chosen was because his fingerprint matches the one that was left at the crime, which was a whirl. Baking soda was found by the piggy bank, and the general was always putting baking soda in his pockets to keep away the mothball smell. The teeth impressions that were at the scene had spaces and the General was always gnawing on wood like a beaver. The footprints showed that the person escaped out of the window. To see the size of the footprint, measure the size and divide by.15, then you take the answer from that and divide by 12 and that should give you 58 which is the height of the General. So you have it, the General committed the crime, and we solved is successfully.
