Nova Online: Killer's Trail
This Web site accompanies the previously broadcast PBS Nova special, Killer's Trail, which focused on the forensic evidence in the 1954 Marilyn Sheppard murder. Your students will love discovering how science helps lawyers and jurists acquit, convict, or exonerate criminal suspects. Students can assemble a DNA fingerprint online and learn about 3-D mugshots that help identify suspects by their ears. Due to the nature of some of the content, this site is most appropriate for older, more mature middle school students. ~psam
