The Suspects

Suspect 4 the Guilty Party: Erin Dixon, 6th Grade History Teacher at the Lovett School

Big image
Erin Dixon was considered 'guilty' because she says in her interrogation that she had conflict about the HSA form. Also, she was seen at 4 pm running around campus with one shoe. She was uncooperative with this. In the crime scene, HS and the stripe of A is written on the whiteboard. This was Mr. Parrish's sign to tell that Ms. Dixon was the murderer. Also, the blood type had to have been A, which also clarifies that Erin committed the crime. Also, in Ms. Lecceardone's interrogation, she says that Ms. Dixon will handle the problem. Finally, in the cloth lab, Erin Dixon's cloth was bloody.

The Calculations

We used math and deduction to figure which poison killed Professor Parrish. In the end, it was Cyanide.
