We've matched
foot prints
to suspects...



The suspects and their foot prints.


We're writing in evidence.



We found a mystery set of footprints.




We used photos
of fiber and hair
found from the crime scene
to narrow down 
our suspect.


We examined

found at the scene.

Powder found at the scene.

We have analyzed

We've just received
Mr. Body's cola glass.
We tested it.
Was is merely cola?


We made our own litmus paper and pH water.

Mr. Body's drink turned the water greenish and turned the paper reddish.
There's definitely something in his drink.

mystery, too?
