Using the attached crime scene scenario, please answer the following questions as thoroughly as possible:
From the listing of evidence collected from the crime scene, please identify from the list of forensic tests available which tests should be conducted on the items of evidence collected, if applicable. The forensic tests you learned about in CCJS 301 are indicated in the scenario and those are the tests you should concentrate on. Every item of evidence must have at least one (1) test requested, and most items should have more than one test selected. You may not request every test on every item of evidence, as this would not be allowed for a real-world forensic lab submission.
In your own words, discuss/explain [provide justification] why you selected these CCJS 301 laboratory analysis for each item of evidence. This means you only must provide an explanation for latent print analysis, firearms analysis and each type of trace analysis.
Describe the various types of known samples/standards you would need to provide with the evidence being submitted to the laboratory. Utilize at least 2 outside resources/course material resources to defend your response.
Explain at least two challenges this crime scenario could present with evidence admissibility in a trial. Utilize at least 2 outside resources/course resources material to defend your response.
Discuss how the evidence admissibility challenges discussed in number 4 could be avoided. Utilize at least 2 outside resources/course resources material to defend your response.
