Tutor description

A man called the police and said that a body had fallen out of the sky and landed on his family car, which was parked in the driveway of his home. Initial canvassing of the area failed to locate any witnesses. The man who called the police was home with his family. They did not see the incident but reported hearing a loud thud and glass breaking. You are the crime scene investigator. When you arrive at the scene, you find what you thought was a bizarre call is in fact true. You see the mangled body of a Caucasian man and a partially deployed parachute streaming in the mild breeze. You also note that the deceased’s reserve chute has not opened. Closer examination of the scene reveals that the deceased is wearing a leg bag containing about 20 lbs. of cocaine and U.S. currency totaling $28,000.00. The victim had in his possession 2 state ID cards, one from California: Andrew Jackson, DOB 01-05-60, 1419 Petulia Drive, Santa Cruz, CA. The second ID is from Texas: Paul Smith, DOB 05-01-61, 268

When police arrived on the scene they found a man in a parachute on top of the car. The man's reserve parachute did not open and the man is wearing a leg bag filled with cocaine. The male victim is also in possession of two different ID's with his face and tow identities. One is Paul Smith and the other is Andrew Jackson. Once the crime scene around the vehicle has been properly secured police will begin the crime scene investigation by documenting the scene. Since the crime scene consists of a sole car and a victim there is no crime scene to walk through so the documentation will consist of a creating a sketch and photographing the scene as a whole. Once the crime scene has been photographed, as a whole, the collection and documentation of evidence will begin (Bishop, 2007). The crime scene investigator would begin with the body and work their way out. The body is the most important piece of evidence and any evidence on the body would be sensitive to being destroyed or damaged. The crime scene investigator would take photographs of the body from every angle to ensure there is enough docu
