“THE CASE OF THE BODY IN THE BAG” While fishing on a river one spring morning, Robert Donkin slipped through the underbrush that lined the river's banks. Nearing the shore, he saw a large canvas bag floating in the water, held by foliage that leaned over the river. Upon closer inspection, Mr. Donkin observed what he believed to be hair floating through the bag's opening. Marking the spot of his discovery, the fisherman fetched the authorities. Preliminary investigation at the scene revealed a body in the bag. Unfortunately, it was impossible to identify the corpse's sex, age, or race immediately. Forensics was assigned to identify the victim and estimate the cause and time of death. While waiting for the forensics analysis, you, the detective in charge, have gathered the information shown in the tables concerning victim offender relationships from recent reports from the FBI. Using the information contained in the tables, you develop a preliminary profile of the victim and offender by determining the likelihood that he: Age of the offender Age of the victim Less than 18 At last18 Total Unknown Total Less than 18 124 619 743 39 782 At least 18 290 5628 5918 480 6398 Total 414 6247 519 Unknown 4 80 84 21 105 Total 418 6327 540 7285 Sex of the offender Sex of victim Male Female Total Unknown Total Male 4710 490 5200 89 5289 Female 1735 150 1885 24 1909 Total 6445 640 7085 113 Unknown 50 11 61 26 87 Total 6495 651 139 7285
