When you see the shows such as Homicide Hunter or Killer Instincts many times my mom and I try to figure out who is the murder. Most of the time my prediction is right because of the details my mom misses, and putting together all the clues. From then on I realised I had a gift, even if it was I was just watching television show. That is what sparked my interest the criminal justice area. I have contemplated the career choices that would best fit my interest leaving me with Homicide Detective and Criminologist. While both careers deal with criminal justice they differ greatly in the type of work environment, pay, skills/education.
In “The Dying Detective,” it explained that Sherlock Holmes was literally dying from the prick of poison. To add, it explained that Mr. Culverton Smith was an expert on the poison that was injected into the ivory box; later we learned that Mr. Culverton Smith was indeed the one who injected it into the box in the first place. In “An Invitation to a Murder,” the crossbones on the prescription medication was believed to be a symbol of poison. Additionally, all of the supplies on the center of the table were items that would typically kill a person; yet, none of those belongings killed Mr. Abbott. Furthermore, both stories were premeditated murders. Mrs. Abbott knew that the twelve intelligent inspectors would prevent her from giving her husband the suspicious medication. Therefore, Mr. Abbott’s heart would stop beating and he would eventually die. On the other hand, Sherlock Holmes planned out every detail of the situation and what would happen. He knew that Dr. Watson would be concerned about Mr. Culverton Smith arriving and would like to stay. This created a witness for Mr. Culverton Smith confessing the crime he committed. Lastly, both of the passages had evidence that exemplified situational irony. Mrs. Abbott was dressed in black to grieve the death of herself and her disabled husband. Moreover, the investigators that were going to witness the murder, became the murderers. In the other story,

A taxi driver was killed during a night robbery in Columbia, South Carolina. Out of this rather ordinary crime, it had been boxed up for nearly four decade until 1997, when the sheriff department created a cold case squad. In 1961, John Orner was shot three times in the head because the suspect tried to remove any money from Orner’s taxi. Following morning, the bloodstained taxi was found abandoned within the streets of Columbia. Through ballistics evidence found in John Orner’s head, police suspected that a person named Edward Freiburger was involved. From forensics examination of those three bullets indicated that the bullets were fired from a .32 caliber Harrington and Richardson (H&R) revolver. Police did manage to catch
Dr.Watson does not only serve as a purpose towards Sherlock, but also towards the readers or audiences. Many may not notice this, but in the Sherlock BBC TV Show, Dr.Watson takes notes of the cases and posts them on his blog. So therefore, the Sherlock stories were written by Dr.Watson. Without Dr.Watson's notes or blog, there would not be a Sherlock Holmes story to be told.
Coroners, originated in England during the early 10th century and transitioned over to the the United States in the 1600’s. Coroners were not required to have any medical training and were appointed by the King and Queen, up until the year 1888, when they would be appointed by local committees.

There are many things to do when you find a dead person's bones and have called the police. According to the text in “Dead men talking: Solving Crimes Through Science” by David Kohn you should “take a look at the crime scene and say, ‘What does this scene tell me?’” Which also means to look around and see if there is any evidence to what how the person's bones got there. It may sound dumb, but when they do this they get a lot of hints to what might have happened. So when I went to look around I saw that the dirt didn't have any grass growing on top of which meant that the bones were buried recently.
When Detective Mike Baskin arrived at the scene, he too gave no thought to fingerprints or any other physical evidence. His first priority was to find the girl and to find the light-colored pickup truck. Those who were present at the scene told him about the happenings, he did not by himself investigate. Furthermore, he did not investigate Haraway’s car, which was parked at the crime scene. They did acknowledge that it was her car (manager pointed this out), but no one thought of looking for any physical evidence. Also, even Detective Baskin did not bother to check what the manager threw away. All the information, – such as how much money was stolen, her purse and her car, everything was told to Detective Baskin, he did not bother to check by himself. In the end, all the law enforcement officers left the crime scene without securing it and allowed the manager to lock up the store.
What is the theory? Everyone is saying that is wasn’t H.H. Holmes that was buried. In 1998 people are saying he had faked his death. What is behind the theory? They victim that had dressed up as him. The people who had his bones and realized that it wasn’t him. What sort of facts and evidence support their claim? That he had bribed his way out of being killed. He had gotten someone that looks like him to be killed so he could get out of his death sentence. What makes this theory invalid? They had dug around the wrong place when they found the skeleton(Adam 1). H.H. Holmes was hiding somewhere else and later on died behind his castle by a trash
3:40pm- IRTC spoke with CPS, Shanika Brown, who reported that this case is no longer assigned to Detective Henry, because Detective Flex actually received this investigation yesterday (8/7/17).

“SUICIDE?” I exclaimed. The eyes of my father and investigator Christensen fell upon me, burning holes through my flesh. “Yes Sherlock, suicide.” Father said. My older brother Mycroft kicked me under the table. “Mr. Sherlock Holmes,” investigator Christensen said glaring at
Jeffrey MacDonald was a medical doctor who was tried for and convicted in 1979 for the February 1970 murders of his pregnant wife, Colette (26) and their two daughters, Kimberly (5), and Kristen (2). He was sentenced to serve three consecutive life sentences. In the early stages of this time, DNA had not yet been properly used to determine evidence at crime scenes. During this particular investigation, the most important forensic finding had to do with blood analysis. A distinctively unique aspect of this examination was the fact that each MacDonald family member had a different blood type. This provided investigators with a fundamental map of each family member's location and movements within the crime scene. This was an utter advantage
