Mitchell 1 Michelle Mitchell Mr. Sebald Chemistry (3) 30 May 2006 The Chemical Murder of Miss Scarlet June 1 2006: Another mystery has come my way. This time it was Miss Scarlet, a young college student, found dead on the floor of the ballroom after her college prom. It was late last night, May 31, 2006, that I, Constable Forest, received the call. I immediately went to investigate at Wisconsin Lutheran College, my alma mater of course. I became suspicious immediately because many of the Science Department professors were standing around the body. I thought to myself, “Why would anyone call a science teacher, before I, the Constable?” Just then I saw it, the murder weapon indeed, a vial filled with a clear liquid. I thought back to my glory days in chemistry class with Mr. M. M. Sebald, approximately the 1970’s, and knew it was either potassium iodide or lead nitrate. The memories came flooding back! All the fun labs I got to do, and my genious lab partner, Mr. Matt Bilitz. Students and the flocking professors told me, although of course I already knew, that Miss Scarlet was violently allergic to potassium iodide. They also reminded me that lead nitrate is a general poison that can be used in a variety of applications, but clearly learned that in kindergarten! I gathered the evidence and went home to get a good nights rest. June 2, 2006: On my first real day of investigation I decided to check out the campus, you know, see if anything changed a lot since my graduation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
