There are two versions of the Murder at Old Fields activity; a real-world kit and an online version.
Diablo Highway is the second lab activity in the Case History forensic science series. the real-world kit available now contains eleven lessons for middle and high school students based on the double-murder of Hazel Frome and her daughter Nancy that occurred in March 1938 on a desert road in Southwest Texas.
