CSI: Socorro, July 29, 2005

CSI Socorro CSI: SOCORRO . . .. High school students enrolled at New Mexico Tech this summer in the university's "CSI: Socorro" Mini Course comb through a staged "crime scene," involving a victim (mannequin pictured in middle of group) who fell while rappelling from, or climbing to, a third-story balcony. As part of the weeklong course, students later conducted their own forensic investigation -- gathering evidence and running trace DNA analyses on diagnostic equipment provided by New Mexico Tech's biology department.
