Skeletal remains were discovered Wednesday morning in the woods behind Motlow College.Fortunately, it was a class project for students in the criminology course taught by Dayron Deaton-Owens and the anatomy-physiology course taught by Gregg Garrison.“We came up with the crime scene idea so students could utilize skills from both classes,” said Deaton-Owens.Students from the criminology class had to first analyze the scene and look for evidence. Yellow crime scene tape marked off the area. Potential clues were scattered around the woods, but students were not told what was a clue and what wasn’t.“We had a strangulation device on the scene,” said Deaton-Owens.
