This case highlights how the glamour of drugs and easy money can lead to a web of deceit, murder and betrayal. A young man is accused of the crime and all the evidence points to his guilt, but is he really the murderer?
An 18 year old boy is arrested for a murder which he claims to know nothing about. The murdered man was found next to a burnt out car in bushland. There are no signs of a struggle and bullet wounds appear to be the cause of death. A gun, drugs and a stash of money were found at the home of the accused.
There are four suspects including the accused boy. Some of the evidence is inconclusive and contradictory. Using their worksheets, students must interpret the evidence and build a case by a process of elimination to expose the real murderer.
