Andy Sayles is a prime suspect in the murder case of Jack Parrish. Mr. Sayles teaches U.S History in 6th grade at The Lovett School. Mr. Parrish is a colleague of Mr. Sayles. Mr. Sayles described his relationship with Mr. Parrish as “for the most part smooth.” Mr. Sayles felt that Mr. Parrish was rude when he criticized the Chattanooga Trip. Mr. Parrish had said comments that Mr. Sayles did not appreciate. Mr. Sayles had been leading the trip for several years. This was the first time going. Mr. Parrish went on the trip and he thought it was not enjoyable. On Tuesday at 1:30 pm, Mr. Sayles had gone to his home in Serenbe treating a mushroom problem in his front yard with the landscapers. A specimen he found was the Death Cap Mushroom. He left Serenbe at about 3:45 pm to return to The Lovett School for practice.
Andy Sayles was not found guilty because in the labs we preformed he did not match the clues found at the crime science. Also in the map we did, it would have taken him too long to return to Lovett by 4:00pm.
John Rice is a prime suspect for the murder case of Jack Parrish. Mr. Rice is a 6th grade US history teacher at the Lovett School. Mr. Parrish is a colleague of Mr. Rice. Mr. Rice claims that their relationship did not usually have much tension. They had a neutral relationship. Mr. Rice says that Mr. Parrish did not work on Fridays. Mr. Rice thinks that he should work on Fridays like the rest of the teachers. Mr. Rice said he came from the baseball fields, but he has rat poison in it containing arsenic. He says that he keeps the arsenic away in a cabinet. On Tuesday, a half day, at 1:30 Mr. Rice was at the baseball facility working. At 4:00 pmMr. Rice says he took a call, but the call was traced to him being in Gainesville. He says he was Christmas shopping but it was found that there were modeling try outs at the mall that day.
John Rice was not found guilty because in the labs we performed he did not match the clues found at the crime scene. Also Mr. Rice could not have made it to Lovett by 4:00 pm to perform the crime.
Kelly Lecceardone was found guilty because she matched the key labs that could prove that she was the murderer. Also Ms. Dixon confirmed to us that Ms. L was not at her house at 4:00 pm, but she dropped her off for a meeting on the Lovett campus.
Erin Dixon is a prime suspect in the murder case of Jack Parrish. Mrs. Dixon is the middle school dean of faculty and instruction and teaches 8th grade advanced science at The Lovett School. Mr. Parrish and Mrs. Dixon worked together because they were both in the science department. Mrs. Dixon has “fine relationship” with Mr. Parrish. Mrs. Dixon found Mr. Parrish to be hard to work with when they were doing HSA work. On Tuesday at 1:30 pm, Mrs. Dixon was with Mrs. Lecceardone having lunch at SOHO. At lunch, Mrs. Dixon and Mrs. Lecceardone discussed the amount of work they have to do and how Mr. Parrish has been “annoying” them. Their lunch ended at about 3:30pm. Mrs. Dixon claims at 4:00pm she had to attend a meeting at The Lovett School with Mrs. Little. Mrs. Dixon also said Mrs. Lecceardone drove her back to school. Mrs. Dixon denies that a guard at the school saw her running from campus without one of her shoes on. Mrs. Dixon said “that was crazy because she loves her heels and puts baby powder in them to make them stick.”
Erin Dixon was not found guilty, but was narrowed down to the top two suspects. Mrs. Dixon matched the blood detection lab and matched the blood typing lab. We found that Mr. Parrish died from poisoning. The poisoning that matched our result in the powder lab pointed to cyanide, but the poisoning Mrs. Dixon had was baby powder.
