How to Solve a Murder – Online Lesson 

In modern policing, collecting evidence at a crime scene is more than just dusting for fingerprints or searching for strands of hair. In many crimes, there can be a trail of digital evidence that leads to the criminal. 

In this interactive lesson, you're going to step into the shoes of a digital forensics specialist and use your digital skills to solve a crime. 

At around 10pm on 28 November police we were alerted to the discovery of a man's body in an office in Bishopbriggs, Glasgow. 

An eyewitness gave a statement that he saw another man leaving the office. The description of the man matches that of known fugitive "Chris Malum", who police are keen to speak to about a series of murders. 

We have cordoned off an area for forensic examination as work continues to understand the circumstances around the man's death. A piece of digital evidence was recovered at the crime scene.  

Your challenge is to use your digital skills to solve the crime and help police catch the murderer.  

  • First, you'll identify, log, and validate the digital evidence recovered at the crime scene 

  • Then you'll investigate that digital evidence to look for clues. 

  • Finally, you'll recover key evidence to lead police to the suspect. 

This case is fictional, but it's based on the real procedures and techniques used in real cases. 

Follow the instructions and let's see if you can crack the case.
