The Robin Hood Hill Murders The Case Imagine you are a FBI agent specializing in CSI. Three days ago three eight-year old boys were found dead in a pond in Union County, Georgia. The pond is located behind a car wash located off of Highway 19. The pond was created from the run off from the water from the car wash. Located behind the car wash and the pond, there is a five acre forested area known as Robin Hood Hills. The area contains several bike and walking paths. The name of the three victims are Christopher Carter, Seven Baxter, and James Nelson.. According to the families of the three boys, they were last seen together between 5:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. on the evening of May 5. The three boys had finished school for the day at Weaver Elementary School at 3:00 p.m. Steven Baxter went home but left shortly afterwards, according to his mother Pam Baxter. Christopher Carter’s step-father, John Marcus, arrived home at 3:10 p.m. but Christopher was not there, his brother Ryan arrived home at 3:30 p.m. Chris did not have a key to the house and was expected to wait outside until Ryan arrived to let him in. John Marcus drove Ryan to the courthouse for a 4:00 p.m. appointment. After dropping Ryan he drove to pick up his wife, Melissa Marcus from work. They both arrived back at their home at 5:20 p.m. to find that Chris was not at home, although there was evidence that he had been there. Soon after, John Marcus left home to pick up Ryan, but on the way he found Christopher riding a skateboard. He took Christopher home where Byers gave him "2 or 3 licks" with a belt, in the presence of Melissa, as punishment for not staying at home as instructed. Before returning to the courthouse to pick up Ryan, Marcus instructed Christopher to clean up the carport area. He was last seen doing this at 5:30 p.m. by Marcus. At 6:00 p.m., Diana Nelson saw her son Michael Nelson riding bicycles with Steven Baxter and Christopher Carter but had been unable to stop them before they rode off. Chris had been sitting on the back of Steven's bike. At 6:30 p.m. John Marcus claims that he arrived home from the courthouse with Ryan to find that Chris was again not at home. Melissa was inside on the phone with her boss and had not been aware that Chris was gone again. John, Melissa and Ryan left their home at 6.30 p.m. to drive around the neighborhood in order to find Chris.

    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.
