At the Crime Scene!

Collecting Clues and Evidence

Series: Solve That Crime!

By Carol Ballard

A bloody fingerprint, a footprint in the mud, insect larvae—all of these are clues that help forensic scientists figure out what happened at a crime scene. Discover how crime scene investigators examine everything at a crime scene, and how they preserve evidence. Readers will also be able to participate in a variety of hands-on activities.
