Your assignment is to write a 2-3 page paper explaining how you would
conduct the investigative preview, and what you would hope to gather from the
Include a brief summary from the case
Your paper needs to explain the preview process in some detail and
shouldn’t be a reiteration of the case.
You’re preview should answer who, what, when, where, why, and
how. The last one, “how” is vitally important and should
explain your recommended procedures in detail. Your report should
also outline what you would do if evidence was found that supported the
allegations against the suspect.
You also need to discuss what to do if no evidence is found that
supports the allegation.
Provide your answers in a Word document and title it with your name,
course, and Case Study
Written work must follow APA or MLA formatting for the paper,
citations, and any references. Make sure you are fully answering the
questions using proper grammar and spelling.
Case Study Scenario:
supervisor has given me a case about a potential child pornography offender who
works as a teacher. Your job is to assist me. Let’s get started.
My role today is as a Senior Forensic Analyst and an
investigator. Sometimes I must go on site to preview data on computers owned or
used by potential suspects. Many times we get a tip that we must check out, and
it’s more practical to go on site and preview data as a preliminary step.
Today, we’ll learn about what you need to do in order to search computers on
site without altering possible evidence. Here’s a bit of background on the case
we’ll be examining today.
Zane Wilkens teaches history at Fuller Middle School. There are
rumors floating about that Zane has been molesting students and taking illicit
pictures of them. It is alleged that he views these images on his office
computer. After hearing about this case, as an investigator, do you agree to
look into this matter?
I’m suggesting we conduct an on-site preview. An on-site preview
occurs when law enforcement investigators view information on a computer
on-site without actually removing the device from the premises. With software
and other materials, the investigator is able to look at the data stored on a
computer without altering any potential evidence. Do we need formal written
consent from the school district to conduct an on-site preview on Zane’s work
computer? You must obtain written consent
Since the middle school principle and district superintendent
have given us written consent to conduct a preview of Zane’s work computer,
we’ll need to gather some supplies. It’s important to find out if there is a
basis for the rumors before we can charge Zane with anything. I’ve compiled a
checklist of the items we’ll need. Take a look!
When we go on-site to preview Zane’s computer, we need to be
sure to use the correct procedure, so we don’t alter evidence. Using a forensic
boot CD or a write block, laptop and forensic software trio, we can access the
computer’s hard drive without altering it. While on site, what other evidence
could help sustain or disprove the allegations? Some pieces of evidence
include: camera, e-mail on network server; and items found in his work area
such as USB drives, notes, photos, and documents. Later, I’ll be asking you to
write a report that outlines what you would do if we found evidence that
supported the allegations against Zane. I will also ask you to discuss what to
do if no evidence is found. Please keep this in mind.
So, what are some of the advantages of conducting an on-site
preview versus seizing computer media? Select all that apply.
If after conducting the on-site preview you find evidence that
supports the allegations, it’s preferable to obtain a search warrant before
leaving the site.
