Reacting with the amino acids and stuff makes sense. Yeah, I found a lot of info about dactyloscopy and the whole reacting idea sounds right. Thanks!

Crime Busters B essay

I was reading one of the posts that said there might not be a culprit in the listed suspects that they give you. Have any of you ever had a test like that? Also, we took the NC state test and I thought there were two culprits. Did anyone else take that test and think the same thing?

I haven't ever heard of no culprit, but I know that they could ask you a question such as "Who was in the kitchen when blah blah blah happened" and the answer could be nobody. I feel like it would be tough to have no culprit, but I do know that there can definitely be two culprits. At the Solon Invitational a couple of years ago, we won CB, and I think that was mainly due to the fact that we put down two culprits in our analysis. However, usually I would just go with one, since it saves more time and if you have enough supporting evidence, it doesn't really make a huge difference.

Our test was so weird... I didn't understand it at all. I didn't even know what the crime was. :lol:
