Super Sleuthing is an adventure and we love it! Just think of all of the current television shows with a forensic crime solving focus.

CSI (in multiple cities), Crossing Jordan, and Bones to name a few. And then there are all sorts of crime solving TV shows that include forensics like Castle, Hawaii Five-O, NCIS, Monk, Law & Order, and so many more.

In real life the work of forensics takes high precision and sometimes a stomach of granite. I have to admit, I could never do it myself.

I am amazed by how forensic heroes have changed criminal apprehension. Thank you to all of the forensic scientists that are the little known heroes of the law enforcement community.

Today’s Wednesday Super Sleuth Challenge case was solved by a Forensic Hero. Read about the crime and see if you can guess who apprehended our criminal.

Don’t forget that today is the last Super Sleuth Challenge of the month. We will be announcing our Super Sleuth of the Month next week, so don’t forget to leave your comments below. The sleuth with the most correct answers this month will be the winner.

The Case of the Twice Shot Camper:

A man went hiking while on a camping trip. He was shot twice in the same hole of his hunting vest. At first it looked like a tragic accident, but when the second bullet was discovered it became a homicide investigation.

When his wife came for help she wore hunting coveralls that were muddy up to the knees. Also, camping nearby was her ex-husband who claimed his .308 rifle and ammunition was missing. He said it had been stolen from his camp.

  1. All sound feasible to my ears but I’m going in Ballistics.

    Since he was shot and Ballistics is the study of ammunition/ guns, I think the ballistics expert figure it out.

    I’d go with the 1. Forensic Scientist Trained in Geology. Maybe the mud on her overalls was a clue to tie her to the crime
