This case highlights the importance of cyber safety with social networking, the dangers of drink spiking and the consequences of taking risks. Who did Sally meet in the park and how did she die?
A 17 year old school girl is found lying face down on the ground at the back of a park pavilion. The girl's parents reported her missing the previous day when she failed to return home from school. There are signs of a struggle and a substantial wound to the head appears to be the cause of death.
There are three suspects including Sally's ex-boyfriend and none have a solid alibi. Using their worksheets, students must interpret the evidence and build a case by eliminating innocent suspects. As they piece together the clues and identify the murderer they uncover the story of what happened to Sally and why.
