Crime Scene Library: Investigating True Crime @ Your Library

Police crime scene tape

Participants spent a Saturday examining true crime with professional investigators and educators, with a noted crime reporter and author as the featured speaker.

Sessions included "Notorious Crimes of the Cape Fear Region"; "The North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission"; "Today's P.I."; and a "Crash Course in Profiling."

Faculty from the local community college used a staged crime scene to explain forensic techniques used by law enforcement. 

As a bonus, participants were invited to take a true-crime quiz and entered a drawing for a $25 gift card.
