Successful Dallas Tax Attorney Sasha Bonner has been found dead in her upscale Dallas condo. Her death appears to be the result of an infection such as e. coli. Was her death accidental or was there a more sinister plan afoot?
Over 1,300 students from 11 Garland Middle and High Schools participated on October 25th to determine whether or not her death was accidental. Students had 2 hours to gather evidence and solve the mystery of Sasha's death. They studied the backstory, visited 4 crime labs for evidence and watched interrogations of the suspects. Finally, they had to write a persuasive 'closing argument' as if they were the Prosecutor speaking to a jury to convict their suspect. Winners were determined based on the accuracy of their evidence logs and the strength of their closing argument.
