Part 1 – The Discovery
1. What observations did the paramedics make? Upon discovery and close investigation on the crime scene, the paramedics made am inquisitive observation due and do took notice of the temperature of the water in the hot tub. 2. List the questions raised about this situation or that you think that the investigators should ask of the maid. Since the maid was the only person who is discovered in the crime scene, it is only appropriate to ask about what she knew regarding the situation. Also, the investigators should also check the background of the maid to see if there are any motives or presumptive connections between her and the victims. 3. List any physiological effects that you think would be associated with this situation. Since there are discovered empty bottles of wine, it is only justifiable to assume that there is some connection between the death of the couples and the physiological effect of alcohol. 4. How might these physiological effects have contributed to the Underbill’s death? There is some probable cause that the reason for the Underbill’s death is closely associated with the fact that they are drunk thus delimiting their normal state of alertness leading them to drown. 5. Make an initial speculation about the cause of the Underbill’s death. As also expressed by the condition of the victims and the crime scene, there are only two possible cause for the Underbill’s death namely the factor attributed to drinking of alcohol leading to their death and the unusually temperature of the water causing them to faint and drown.
Part II- The Investigation 1. Do you think that the couple died before or as a result of going under the water of the tub? Explain your reasoning. As also expressed by the evidences and the investigation, it appears that the couple died as a result of going under the water
