On YouTube, there’s a show called, “Cold Justice”. Kelly Sigler is a former Harris County, State of Texas prosecutor and on the show. She, along with Yolanda Mcclary, a Crime Scene Investigator, go to various towns that have had unsolved murder cases and absolutely tear into these cases that have been cold for years. Many of them are solved inside of a week. How? ATTENTION TO DETAIL!
Because details are so important in law, I want you to really LOOK at what Ms. Sigler is doing in order to solve the case. She looks at every detail, leaving no stone unturned. Her methodology is quite simple but extremely effective.
Go to YouTube, (See Link Below), and find the show, “Cold Justice. You can pick any case study you wish, but it must be a case study. Once you’ve picked a case to view, answer the following questions for your report:

What are the specifics on each of the suspects?
What details were given at the scene of the crime?

Who is the final suspect?
How is that suspect caught, if the case is resolved?
What methodology does Ms. Sigler use to solve the case?
